Our work with the Ecuadorean Red Cross

The ICRC cooperates with National Societies to further their institutional development and their role as auxiliaries to the public authorities for the safe delivery of relevant humanitarian services. We also help National Societies to strengthen their capacities so that they are able to provide an effective response in natural disasters, armed conflicts and other situations of violence. We coordinate with other International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement partners, working with them in a complementary manner and adapting our cooperation to the specific context of each country and the needs of each individual National Society.
