The Sahrawi Red Crescent Society is the Red Cross society in the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic.
During the first years of the organization, its major task was to reunite families who were scattered through the desert due to the Western Sahara War removing them from the battlefields to the neighbouring Algerian Sahara, facing the aerial bombardments of the Moroccan Air Force. Later came the organization of the refugee camps at the Algerian desert.
