SRC aims to give voice to humanity with two new podcast formats

With the podcast formats "SRK Aktuell" and "SRK Engagiert", the Swiss Red Cross (SRC) wants to give humanity a voice and make the work of the SRC and its member organizations audible.

SRK AktuellThe "SRK Aktuell" channel is the first to be launched due to the current situation. In the first episode, emergency aid expert Andrea Schmid has her say. Among other things, she deals with cash distribution in crisis areas. She talks about how the SRC is providing concrete help in Ukraine - and how she personally deals with stressful situations. In the second episode, we speak to child and adolescent psychologist Silvan Holzer from the SRC Outpatient Clinic for Victims of Torture and War. He explains why refugee children long for normality rather than special treatment and what the magic word "Sinopastem" means.

Information on crises and major events

SRK Aktuell is a compact, short information format in the form of an interview podcast. In times of major events such as the war in Ukraine, it answers questions from the public or specialists and provides up-to-date information. The commitment of the SRC and its member organizations, such as the Swiss Life Saving Association and the Samaritan Federation, are presented and current aid is discussed. In conversations with experts and committed SRC volunteers, listeners learn about the work that is being done.

Emotional stories that show the work of the SRC

"SRK Engagiert" is intended to get to the bottom of things and is a reportage and research format. This podcast shows the work of the SRC through concrete and personal stories. In "SRK Engagiert", people who are committed to the SRC and those who benefit from its services have their say. It will be launched at a later date. The contributions will be produced with Audiobande.
