“The role and challenges of the International Committee of the Red Cross »?
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) was established in 1863. It operates worldwide, helping people affected by conflict and armed violence and promoting the laws that protect victims of war.
Being an independent and neutral organization, its mandate stems essentially from the Geneva Conventions of 1949.
ICRC is based in Geneva, Switzerland, and employs over 21,000 people in more than 100 countries.
It is funded mainly by voluntary donations from governments and from National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
