Established: 1863

Background:

According to the ICRC website the organisation "works worldwide to provide humanitarian help for people affected by conflict and armed violence and to promote the laws that protect victims of war. An independent and neutral organization, its mandate stems essentially from the Geneva Conventions of 1949. Based in Geneva, Switzerland, it employs some 12,000 people in 80 countries; it is financed mainly by voluntary donations from governments and from national Red Cross and Red Crescent societies."

During his 40-year career photojournalist Tom Stoddart witnessed and documented the fall of the Berlin Wall, the election of Nelson Mandela, wars in Lebanon, the former Yugoslavia and Iraq and the HIV/AIDS catastrophe in Africa.

Earlier this year, Mr. Stoddart, a Reportage by Getty Images staff photographer, travelled to South Sudan with the ICRC to document the plight of refugees who had fled fighting in Sudan.
