Friends of the ICRC

Friends of the ICRC

The Friends of the ICRC are a group of individuals with a personal commitment to our work.

The Circle of Friends was created in 2014 and has since then contributed to several of our programmes around the world. Embark on a journey through Storymap to find out more about the activities the Circle has supported.


"The Circle of Friends is calling on your generosity, so that we can do more on the front lines: saving lives, caring for the wounded, and helping victims of armed conflict maintain or regain their dignity."

Gilles Carbonnier
ICRC Vice-President

Join our Circle of Friends

By becoming a Friend of the ICRC, you will be joining forces with the greatest humanitarian movement of our time.

To minimize victims' suffering in major emergencies, we must be able to arrive on site rapidly – not wait until funds can be raised. As a Friend of the ICRC, you will help us to ensure that we are always ready to help those in need, including in forgotten conflicts.

You will also enjoy certain privileges for being part of our close-knit circle. This is our way of showing you just how much we appreciate your generosity and value you as a partner.
