International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, which has emerged as a result of seeking to help all wounded on the battlefield without exception and preference, is trying to prevent or alleviate human suffering under any circumstances, both internationally and nationally. The movement is called upon to protect the life and health of people, to ensure respect for the human. It contributes to the achievement of mutual understanding, friendship, cooperation and lasting peace between nations.
Movement is independent. National societies, while providing assistance to their governments in their humanitarian activities and subject to the laws of their country, must maintain autonomy in order to be able to act in accordance with the principles of the Red Cross and Red Crescent.
