ICRC president Jakob Kellenberger presented our Emergency Appeals for 2012 earlier today in Geneva.

"Events in the first few months of 2011" he said, "confirmed at least one important objective for the ICRC in 2012 and beyond - that it must be ready and able to respond quickly to complex humanitarian needs in increasingly diverse and unexpected situations", something Intercross confirms, unfortunately, almost every day.
