The ICRC Regional Delegation in New Delhi

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is an independent and non-political organisation with a large scope of activities which it undertakes through its presence in most countries. Its existence and activities are universally recognised and it regularly responds to the needs of people adversely affected by situations of humanitarian concern, in particular armed conflict and violence.

Usually working in partnership with National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, the ICRC provides humanitarian aid and expertise, most notably in these areas: emergency response, detention management, humanitarian forensics, international humanitarian law, restoration of family links, orthopaedic services and water and habitat.

The ICRC has a proven record and long history in Asia and works by engaging with all parties concerned through a unique approach based on discretion, transparency and reliability in order to be able to reach and meet the needs of vulnerable persons.
