Learn how the Geneva Conventions protect civilians, prisoners of war and wounded soldiers during wartime.

Even in war there are limits. The Geneva Conventions protect civilians, prisoners of war and wounded soldiers. Humanitarian principles are at the core of the Red Cross mission; wartime humanitarian action was at the heart of the creation of the Red Cross. Continuing this work requires inspiring and engaging the next generation. The American Red Cross helps people in the United States to understand and respect international humanitarian law and humanitarian principles.
