In November 2014, StoryCorps visited the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the American Red Cross in Washington DC to record conversations between people whose lives have been affected by the Red Cross. StoryCorps is the world's largest oral history project. This collection captures amazing stories of how the Red Cross touches peoples’ lives every day. Listen to their stories.
