The 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. We usually work in partnership with National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies of India, Nepal, Bhutan and the Maldives.
