About The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement
The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is the world’s largest humanitarian network. The Movement is neutral and impartial, and provides protection and assistance to people affected by disasters and conflicts. The Movement was founded to protect human life and health, to ensure respect for all human beings, and to prevent and alleviate human suffering. The Movement is made up of nearly 100 million members, volunteers and supporters in 191 National Societies. It has three main components:The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and 190 member Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. As partners, the different members of the Movement support communities in becoming stronger and safer through a variety of development projects and humanitarian activities. The Movement also works in cooperation with governments, donors and other aid organizations to assist vulnerable people around the world. The ICRC, the Federation and the National Societies are independent bodies. Each has its own individual status and exercises no authority over the others.
