The Henry Dunant, the flagship of the Dutch Red Cross, fell victim to robbers over the Easter weekend.
The Dutch Red Cross wants to set up a network of volunteers that will spring into action in case of an emergency. This specific group of volunteers must not have any other tie to the Red Cross.
The Dutch Red Cross will add 600 assisting staff to its services at the carnaval in Limburg and Noord-Brabant. That's 60 percent more than last year, when 235 volunteers were standing ready.
