International Committee Of The Red Cross (icrc)

Sinopse

The ICRC is an independent and neutral organization that protects and assists the victims of armed conflict and other violence. Every two weeks, we'll be publishing a new podcast, with a new and interesting episode from the organization's past and present. We're currently in the process of digitizing and cataloguing our rich audio archives, which means we too are discovering a few long-forgotten stories.
