How we work

The seven Fundamental Principles provide an ethical, operational and institutional framework for the work of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement around the world. They are at the core of the Movement's approach to helping people in need during armed conflict, natural disasters and other emergencies. Seven principles include humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity, and universality.

... and why

The ICRC endeavors to prevent suffering by promoting and strengthening humanitarian law and universal humanitarian principles.
