International Committee of the Red Cross

Established in 1863, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is at the origin of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. The ICRC is an impartial, neutral and independent organization whose exclusive humanitarian mission is to protect the lives and dignity of victims of war and internal violence and to provide them with assistance. It directs and coordinates the international relief activities conducted by the Movement in situations of conflict. Among its many activities, the ICRC searches for missing persons, exchanges messages to and from members of separated families, helps establish hospital and security zones in embattled areas, visits prisoners of war and civilian detainees, spreads knowledge and monitors compliance of humanitarian law, organizes international aid programs and provides medical assistance for refugees, displaced people, and other civilian victims of armed conflicts. It also endeavors to prevent suffering by promoting and strengthening humanitarian law and universal humanitarian principles.
