The international RC aid foundation supports aid for self-help in order to counteract migration in countries affected by disasters. The long-term activities of the GRC strengthen the resilience of the people directly in the crisis regions and enable them to act beyond a current emergency situation.
Sustainability and long-term orientation are the key features of the international GRC aid. This is why the projects of the international Red Cross aid foundation support building organically grown infrastructures that will not only benefit present, but also future generations. To do this the GRC closely cooperates with members of National Red Cross Societies that work locally.
