The
Fundamental
Principles
HUMANITY
"We serve people but not systems"
The International Movement, born of a desire
to bring assistance without discrimination to the wounded on the battlefield, endeavors to prevent and alleviate human suffering wherever it may be found.

No discrimination as to Nationality, Race, Religious beliefs,
Class or Political opinions. It endeavour's to relieve
the suffering of individuals, being guided solely
by their needs, and to give priority to
the most urgent cases of distress

IMPARTIALITY
"We care for everyone without discrimination
but we prioritize the most needy"
NEUTRALITY
"We take initiatives but never take sides"
does not take sides in hostilities
does not engage in controversies of a political,
racial, religious or ideological nature.

INDEPENDENCE
"We bow to needs but not to any person"
Is an auxiliary to the humanitarian services
of government.

Must maintain its autonomy
so as to act at all times in accordance
with Red Cross principles.

VOLUNTARY SERVICE
"We work around the clock but never for personal gain"
It is a voluntary relief movement not prompted
in any manner by a desire for gain.

UNITY
"We have many talents but a single idea "
Only one Red Cross Society in any country.
It must carry one emblem in its humanitarian work throughout its territory. It is open to ALL

UNIVERSALITY
"We respect nations but our works knows no bounds "
The Red Cross is worldwide.

All National Societies have:

** equal status
** equal responsibilities
**equal duty to help each other

Humanity
and
Impartiality
express the objectives of the Movement.
Neutrality
and
Independence
ensure access to those in need of help.
Voluntary Service
,
Unity
and
Universality
enables the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement to work effectively all over the world.
