The ICRC’s priorities for 2013
The ICRC is asking for 1.17 billion Swiss francs to cover its operations in 2013. This money will enable us to maintain a wide range of activities in response to a wide range of needs, while taking the difficult security environment into account.
Operations director Pierre Krähenbühl talks about some of our objectives for 2013
"Iraq is a country that has disappeared somewhat from the centre of public attention but where needs remain very significant. The ICRC will continue to carry out visits to persons detained and help some of the more affected and vulnerable populations."
The Syrian conflict has generated a catastrophic level of needs for the population affected by death, injury, displacement, detention, separation and the general anxiety of day-to-day insecurity."
