The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) helps people around the world affected by armed conflict and other situations of violence, doing everything we can to protect their dignity and relieve their suffering. We also seek to prevent hardship by promoting and strengthening humanitarian law and championing universal humanitarian principles.
People know they can rely on the ICRC to carry out a range of life-saving activities in conflict zones, including: supplying food, safe drinking water, sanitation and shelter; providing healthcare; and helping to reduce the danger of landmines and unexploded ordnance. We also reunite family members separated by conflict, and visit people who are detained to ensure they are treated properly. The ICRC works closely with communities to understand and meet their most urgent needs, using our experience and expertise to respond quickly, effectively and without taking sides.
