ICRC Reception

16:00 - 17:00


Organized by ICRC(The International Committee of the Red Cross)

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) helps people around the world affected by armed conflicts and other situations of violence, doing everything it can to protect their dignity and relieve their sufferings, often with its Red Cross and Red Crescent partners. The organization also seeks to prevent hardships by promoting and strengthening humanitarian laws and championing universal humanitarian principles. As the authority on international humanitarian law, it develops and monitors compliance with it. 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 health care; and helping to reduce the danger of landmines and unexploded ordnance. It also reunites family members separated by conflict, and visits people who are detained to ensure they are treated properly. The organization works closely with communities to understand and meet their needs, using its experience and expertise to respond quickly, effectively and without taking sides
