International Committee of the Red Cross

International Committee of the Red Cross

Since its creation in 1863, the International Committee of the Red Cross’ sole objective has been to ensure protection and assistance for victims of armed conflict and strife. It does so through its direct action around the world, as well as by encouraging the development of international humanitarian law (IHL) and promoting respect for it by governments and all weapon bearers. Its story is about the development of humanitarian action, the Geneva Conventions and the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.

Within central Africa, the first branches were established through the British Red Cross Society, a society formed in 1870.
