About RCRC magazine

Our goal is to connect you with powerful stories told by people around the world who are coping with enormous challenges due to natural disasters, climate change, health emergencies and conflict. We want to share what we learn from these stories so that — together — we can better understand the realities many people face and how we can all help them find solutions. We also hope to inspire you to engage and join with others — including the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement — in working to make life better for all people around the world.

We aim to do this by helping you see the world the way it’s seen by those who are grappling directly, day-by-day, with the great humanitarian crises of the 21st Century. Through their eyes. With their voices

We do this by taking you there, into people’s daily lives. Their struggles, their dreams; their music, food, passions and sorrows. By accompanying them as they find innovative strategies to tackle complex and seemingly insurmountable problems.

The magazine is a
Movement storytelling hub

The International Committee of the Red Cross is an impartial, neutral and independent organization whose exclusively humanitarian mission is to protect the lives and dignity of victims of armed conflict and other situations of violence and to provide them with assistance.

The ICRC also endeavours to prevent suffering by promoting and strengthening humanitarian law and universal humanitarian principles. Established in 1863, the ICRC is at the origin of the Geneva Conventions and the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. It directs and coordinates the international activities conducted by the Movement in armed conflicts and other situations of violence.

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is the world’s largest volunteer-based humanitarian network, reaching 150 million people each year through its 192 member National Societies. Together, the IFRC acts before, during and after disasters and health emergencies to meet the needs and improve the lives of vulnerable people. It does so with impartiality as to nationality, race, gender, religious beliefs, class and political opinions. The IFRC is committed to ‘saving lives and changing minds’.

National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies embody the work and principles of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement in more than 192 countries. National Societies act as auxiliaries to the public authorities of their own countries in the humanitarian field and provide a range of services including disaster relief, health and social programmes. During wartime, National Societies assist the affected civilian population and support the army medical services where appropriate.
