Established in 1863, the ICRC operates worldwide, helping people affected by conflict and armed violence and promoting the laws that protect victims of war. An independent and neutral organization, its mandate stems essentially from the Geneva Conventions of 1949. We are based in Geneva, Switzerland, and employ some 18,000 people in more than 90 countries. The ICRC is funded mainly by voluntary donations from governments and from National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.

Our mandate & mission

The work of the ICRC is based on the Geneva Conventions of 1949, their Additional Protocols, its Statutes − and those of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement − and the resolutions of the International Conferences of the Red Cross and Red Crescent. The ICRC is an independent, neutral organization providing humanitarian protection and assistance to victims of war and armed violence. It takes action in response to emergencies and promotes respect for international humanitarian law and its implementation in national law.

The ICRC's Mission Statement

The International Committee of the Red Cross is an impartial, neutral and independent organization whose exclusively humanitarian mission is to protect the lives and dignity of victims of armed conflict and other situations of violence and to provide them with assistance.

The ICRC also endeavours to prevent suffering by promoting and strengthening humanitarian law and universal humanitarian principles.
