The article presents a brief overview of the activities of the Red Cross in Slovenia and in the Prekmurje region before and during the First World War and at the time of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes/Yugoslavia. Since the Prekmurje region belonged to Hungary until August 1919, the social, health and living conditions there were much worse than in other Slovenian regions. The Red Cross spent most of its time preventing the spread of the contagious eye disease trachoma. Residents were usually treated at the Prelog Eye Hospital in Međimurje County. Trachoma was finally eradicated in Prekmurje in the 1960s.
