About International Committee of the Red Cross (lCRC)

In Nigeria, the ICRC helps people affected by armed conflict and violence, particularly in the north-east, the Middle Belt and the Niger Delta states. We promote IHL and other rules that protect people during armed violence and we support the emergency-response work of the Nigerian Red Cross.

What we do
The ICRC responds quickly and efficiently to help people affected by armed conflict. We also respond to disasters in conflict zones, because the effects of a disaster are compounded if a country is already at war. Emergencies are unpredictable, so our rapid deployment capability is hugely important.

Established in 1863, the ICRC operates worldwide, helping people affected by conflict and armed violence and promoting the laws that protect victims of war. An independent and neutral organization, its mandate stems essentially from the Geneva Conventions of 1949. We are based in Geneva, Switzerland, and employ some 16,000 people in more than 80 countries. The ICRC is funded mainly by voluntary donations from governments and from National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
