I.F.R.C. The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is an international humanitarian movement with approximately 97 million volunteers, members and staff worldwide[3] which was founded to protect human life and health, to ensure respect for all human beings, and to prevent and alleviate human suffering.


The movement consists of several distinct organizations that are legally independent from each other, but are united within the movement through common basic principles, objectives, symbols, statutes and governing organisations. The movement's parts are: History of Movement[edit] The International Committee of the Red Cross[edit] Solferino, Jean-Henri Dunant and the foundation of the ICRC[edit] Until the middle of the 19th century, there were no organized and/or well-established army nursing systems for casualties and no safe and protected institutions to accommodate and treat those who were wounded on the battlefield.

Modalités générales[modifier | modifier le code] Emergency management. For the legal concept, see Emergency Aid Doctrine Disaster management (or emergency management) is the term used to designate the efforts of communities or businesses to plan for and coordinate all personnel and materials required to either mitigate the effects of, or recover from, natural or man-made disasters, or acts of terrorism.[1][2] Disaster management does not avert or eliminate the threats, although their study is an important part of the field. Events covered by disaster management include acts of terrorism, industrial sabotage, fire, natural disasters (such as earthquakes, hurricanes, etc.), public disorder, industrial accidents, and communication failures. OperationSAFE. Global Water Foundation. The Global Water Foundation (GWF)is a non-profit organisation dedicated to delivering clean water and sanitation to the world's neediest communities. Professional tennis player Johan Kriek founded the organisation in 2005 after attending meetings of the World Economic Forum in Cape Town, South Africa.

The goals of the GWF echo the Millennium Development Goals established at the United Nations' Millennium Summit in September 2000.[1] Headquartered in Johannesburg, South Africa, with offices in Sarasota, Florida, and Raleigh, North Carolina, in the United States,[2] the GWF's goal is to raise public awareness, contribute technical assistance and fund programs to improve water quality and provide adequate sanitation in schools, rural areas and other communities across developing nations. Overview[edit] The GWF is in the service of humanity: to help make the world a better place, a healthier place, a safer place and ultimately a place of peace and prosperity. Welcome to World Relief.
