The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has detailed an account of its activities conducted over the past year in its 2022 Annual Report.

These activities are part of the organization’s mandate to protect the lives and dignity of victims of war, and to promote respect for international humanitarian law.

Through its neutral, impartial and independent approach to humanitarian work, the ICRC was able to reach communities inaccessible to others and to maintain its proximity to conflict-affected people, allowing it to engage closely with them and ensure that its programmes were adapted to their needs, accessible, and supportive of their capacities.

Across the globe, the ICRC also delivered timely aid during emergencies and helped communities build their resilience to the effects of conflict, enabling millions of people to meet their most urgent needs, have access to clean water and life-saving health care, and bolster their food security.

Thousands of detainees received visits from ICRC delegates, who checked on their situation and provided support to improve their living conditions.

Their Central Tracing Agency, with its partners in the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, enabled separated family members to restore contact with one another and searched for those missing in relation to armed conflict, migration or other reasons.

The ICRC helps those affected by armed conflict and promotes compliance with international humanitarian law.

Globally, the ICRC in 2022 recorded 22,562 staff members, with 105 delegations and missions, in over 100 countries.
