Going out on a limb here, and say no.
That would totally destroy the foundation on which they could exist and work.

Honest to God RDG. Considering the many humanitarian organizations whose very existence must demand neutrality—how many of those would charter provisions for the distribution of weaponry and believe such measures consistent with humanitarian goals?

“Red Cross workers put themselves at risk to help those suffering from disasters like hurricanes, floods and earthquakes, famine, disease and armed conflict around the world. They carry no weapons. Their only shield is the red cross emblem. ”
