2 ICRC : Who are we ? The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is a Swiss-based humanitarian organization and founding member of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement (1863). This Movement is composed of the ICRC, National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. The ICRC is mandated by the international community to be the guardian and promoter of international humanitarian law. We work around the world providing assistance to people affected by armed conflict and other situations of violence. The organization has delegations and missions in some 80 countries around the world and employs a staff of over 12,000 people, most of them nationals of the countries in which it works. About 800 people work at the ICRCs headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland,
