World Humanitarian Day

Today, as every day, is Humanitarian Day. We pay tribute to all humanitarian workers and volunteers, including those within our International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is the world's largest humanitarian organization, with 190 member National Societies. As part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, our work is guided by seven fundamental principles; humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality.
