About The International Committee of the Red Cross

Since 1863, the ICRC has been working worldwide to provide humanitarian help for people affected by conflict and armed violence and to promote the laws that protect victims of war.  This independent and neutral organization is financed mainly by voluntary donations from governments and from national Red Cross and Red Crescent societies.

They are one of the world’s leading aid organizations helping the victims of war and other situations of violence. Every year, our 12,000 staff provide relief assistance, clean water, sanitation and medical aid to millions of people around the world. This work is also made possible thanks to the tireless efforts of thousands of dedicated Red Cross and Red Crescent volunteers across the globe.

One response to Somalia: Thousands of people still looking for relatives | The International Committee of the Red Cross

    World, almost 1000 conferences annually around the globe, but other religions have only yearly conferences, attended only by choose couple of people from each chapel, and usually, only within the U.S.?

    Like a cab driver, I frequently transport people around for religious conferences. The cab motorists hate it when JWs have been in town because they do not go to the evening clubs/bars, or shopping within the trendy clothing areas, such as the other religions. I hear exactly the same tales around the cab driver network, using their company metropolitan areas all over the world. Some tourism groups have attempted to obtain places like Kemper arena in KCMO, to prevent leasing space for that JW conferences, because they do not lead to tourism.

    Perform the other religions not need all of their people to go to religious conferences? Would it not benefit them for his or her people to satisfy other people, throughout the location, and world. on the yearly basis?


    A number of my teenage clients possess a pool happening how lengthy it’ll grow each year. It’s my job to shave them back every 3-4 several weeks. This really is five several weeks growth from the shave. Additionally they shaved my mind and contributed it to make hairpieces. I needed to buy my first razor after i was 12.


    I did not say I hated it, exactly that other motorists do. I love everybody, except bigots. I recieve together with everybody as well as compliment the 200lb guy visiting the gay bar putting on an outfit that which should happen to be burned being an effigy to bad taste.
