The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, born of a desire to bring assistance without discrimination to the wounded on the battlefield, endeavours, in its international and national capacity, to prevent and alleviate human suffering wherever it may be found.

Seven principles are fundamental to the work of the Red Cross:

- Humanity
- Impartiality
- Neutrality
- Independence
- Voluntary service
- Unity
- Universality

Take a look around the world today, focusing on where the 'bottom billion' reside. These people live in countries where the 7 principles are NOT fundamental.

I'll define it for the sake of this reply as where NOT ENOUGH progress has been made to achieve the Millennium Development Goals, and MDGs will probably not be met  by 2015.   These are countries where the International Red Cross movement will be involved in the decade to come.
