Founded in 1863, ICRC works worldwide to ensure humanitarian assistance to victims of armed conflict or strife and to publicize the rules that protect the victims of war. A neutral and independent organization, its mandate stems essentially from the Geneva Conventions of 1949. Based in Geneva, Switzerland, it employs some 11,000 people in 80 countries; it is financed mainly by donations from governments and National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
The work of the ICRC is based on the Geneva Conventions of 1949 and their Additional Protocols, its Statutes - and those of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement - and the resolutions of the International Conferences of the Red Cross and Red Crescent.
The ICRC is an independent, neutral organisation ensuring humanitarian protection and assistance for victims of armed conflict and other situations of violence. It takes action in response to emergencies and at the same time promotes respect for international humanitarian law and its implementation in national law.
