Together, we can make a difference - Our partnership with the Bol d'Or Mirabaud


The ICRC will be the Bol d'Or Mirabaud's main charity partner at the regatta's 80th edition, which will take place from 8 to 10 June 2018. Two crews will fly the flag for the ICRC, racing in boats provided by the event's organizers.

At the ICRC, we have always sought to build partnerships with governments and other organizations in order to find innovative ways of helping those whose lives have been shattered by conflict.

This thirst for innovation continues to guide our response to people's most urgent humanitarian needs. Our teams of war surgeons have, for instance, developed new ways of saving lives and, as such, have had an impact on medical practices worldwide.

It is important for us to ensure that we keep in step with our changing world while also remaining true to our fundamental values. In health care, for instance, we are constantly working to develop and employ new technologies in order to respond more quickly and effectively to people's needs. One example is the ALgorithm for the MANAgement of CHildhood illnesses (ALMANACH), which was tested and implemented in Nigeria last year. This year, it will help to improve the clinical care provided to around 310,000 children.
