In our own words

Exactly 150 years ago, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) was set up as a humanitarian assistance organization.

But the ICRC is not just any organization. It operates around the world in accordance with the same fundamental principles; it responds to the needs of the vulnerable in society; and it is capable of mobilizing 100 million volunteers for a wide range of tasks.
