About the ICRC Kuala Lumpur Regional Delegation

Kuala Lumpur Regional delegation of the International Committee of the Red Cross covering Malaysia, Singapore & Brunei.

The International Committee of the Red Cross' (ICRC) presence in Malaysia can be traced to the 1940s. In 1973, we formalised our presence by setting up an office in Kuala Lumpur on invitation from the government. 

Today, the ICRC Kuala Lumpur regional delegation oversees activities in Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei Darussalam.

With a team of 50 members, we work with our local partners in the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement (the Malaysian Red Crescent Society, Singapore Red Cross Society and Brunei Darussalam Red Crescent Society) to fulfil our mandate as the reference organisation for International Humanitarian Law.
