The Spanish Red Cross founded the movement in Puerto Rico on July 7,1893 when Puerto Rico was still under the dominance of the Spain government. Manuel Fernández Juncos, a member of the Spanish government and a Spanish Red Cross delegate to Puerto Rico, was the person charged with the task of founding "Las Comisiones de la Cruz Roja Española" (Spanish Red Cross branches) throughout Puerto Rico. The Spanish Red Cross "Comisiones" (branches) in Puerto Rico remained active until 1898 when the American Red Cross started to make a presence on the island through its Nursing corps.
