The International Committee of the Red Cross in the Philippines, or ICRC in the Philippines, was born in 1959. And, 23 years later (1982), a permanent office was established.
ICRC in the Philippines mainly focuses its humanitarian assistance on the most isolated areas of the country. And these are areas well known to be prone to natural disasters as a result of climate change.
The Philippine Red Cross is housed in Makati City, with its sub-branches situated in Mindanao and Visayas/Luzon regions.
ICRC maintains close cooperation with the government of the Philippines, donors, and other aid organizations to assist vulnerable people in the country.
