The Philippine National Red Cross (PNRC), founded in 1947, is affiliated to
the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. It is the
follower of the early National Association of the Red Cross, approved on 17
February 1899 by the Malolos Republic. Organized in 1905, the Philippine Branch
of the American National Red Cross (ANRC) was officially recognized as a Chapter
of the ANRC on 4 December 1917. After the independence of the Philippines, the
PNRC Charter (Republic Act No. 95) was signed by President Roxas on 22 March
1947. Approved on 29 March by the ICRC, the PNRC was officially inaugurated on
15 April. Affiliation to the International League (today, Federation) of Red
Cross and Red Crescent Societies was approved on 17 September 1947.
