Organizational Context

Who we are?

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is a humanitarian organization established in Paris in 1919 after the first World War. It is the world’s largest volunteer-based humanitarian network, reaching 150 million people each year through our member National Societies. Together, we act before, during and after disasters and health emergencies to meet the needs and improve the lives of vulnerable people. We do so with impartiality as to nationality, race, gender, religious beliefs, class and political opinions. At the IFRC, we work as partners in development, responding to disasters, supporting healthy and safe living, and improving humanitarian standards. As a result, we help reduce vulnerabilities, make communities more resilient and foster a culture of peace around the world.

The IFRC is a component of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, which includes.

the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the 189 Red Cross Red Crescent National Societies.

Our vision is to inspire, encourage, facilitate and promote at all times all forms of humanitarian activities by Red Cross Red Crescent National Societies, with a view to preventing and alleviating human suffering, and thereby contributing to the maintenance and promotion of human dignity and peace in the world.

What we do?

Our humanitarian work is guided by our 7 Fundamental Principles and centered on our mission “to improve the lives of vulnerable people by mobilizing the power of humanity” and focused on four core areas: promotion of the Movement’s Fundamental Principles and humanitarian values; disaster response; disaster preparedness, and health and care in the community.
