    Background: Traffic stopped in the streets of the Congolese capital, Kinshasa, recently as a big procession made its way through the city. The Congolese branch of the International Red Cross was celebrating, and asking for recruits.

    Presiding over it all was the National President of the Red Cross in the Congo, M.Antoine Mobe. He told the crowd the story of the Red Cross in the congo, of the services it had given in troubled times. He spoke of the organisation's achievements, and appealed to the people to join it.

    Then came the parade, along Kinshasa's Avenue Kasavubu. There were boy scouts carrying the Red Cross flag, and a contingent of the capital's firemen. Behind them marched some of the people who organised Red Cross activities, and there were squads of schoolgirls who had been given first aid training by the organisation.

    One man who didn't have to walk in the parade show another part of Red Cross work..... he lay on a stretcher carried by four other volunteers.
