The Cambodian Red Cross (CRC) is the largest humanitarian organization in Cambodia. Established on the 18 February 1955, it is officially recognized by the Royal Government as an auxiliary to the public authorities in humanitarian services to relieve the sufferings of the most vulnerable.
Acknowledged by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) on October 7 1960, the CRC was admitted as a Member of the International Federation of Red Cross Red Crescent Societies (the Federation) on 8 October 1960. However, during the Khmer Rouge Regime (1975-1979), all Red Cross activities in Cambodia were suspended and the CRC’s seat in the General Assembly of the Federation was left vacant. Between 1979 and 1994, the CRC lost its national unity as each of the four warring factions in Cambodia set up their own Society within their respective areas of control. However, the NS was reunified in 1994 and the CRC was reinstated to the Federation. Read more
