Reading time 2 min read
I am very honoured and pleased to be given the opportunity to explain to you the role of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and some of the logistical aspects of its assistance activities. No doubt many of you know about the Red Cross in general but it might be of interest to you to hear about the special position and role of the ICRC in the Red Cross movement and among all the many other humanitarian organizations. I shall afterwards explain what are the logistical difficulties the ICRC must overcome in its assistance activities.
