The German Red Cross is part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent movement, which – with 191 national societies – is the largest humanitarian organization in the world. For more than 150 years we have been providing comprehensive aid to people in conflict situations and disaster areas, in health or social emergencies – without a view of nationality, religion or gender, only according to the degree of their need.
With the support of more than three million members, the GRC each year provides assistance to people in around 50 countries. This work is always guided by our main principle: humanity. As a non-profit organization, the responsible utilisation of the money entrusted to us is our highest priority. That is why we have joined various transparency initiatives. Moreover our funding is regularly reviewed by the Deutsches Zentralinstitut für soziale Fragen (DZI – German Central Institute for Social Issues).
