Programme Coordinator for Canadian Red Cross- IFRC


The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is the world’s largest humanitarian organization. Our vision is to inspire, encourage, facilitate and promote at all times all forms of humanitarian activities by National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, with a view to preventing and alleviating human suffering, and thereby contributing to the maintenance and promotion of human dignity and peace in the world. 

The IFRC carries out relief operations to assist people affected by disasters and crises, and combines this with development work to strengthen the capacities of its member National Societies. The IFRC’s work focuses on four core areas: promoting humanitarian values, disaster response, disaster preparedness, and health and community care. Positions in the IFRC may be based in the main office in Geneva (Switzerland) or in field offices around the world. A career in the IFRC will involve working alongside colleagues from National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, supporting, coordinating and facilitating the humanitarian work we undertake. 

In response to significant humanitarian needs following the earthquake in Nepal, the IFRC has launched a 33.4 million Swiss franc emergency appeal to provide vital services including food, shelter and water and sanitation assistance for 75,000 vulnerable people. The appeal was launched following an initial Disaster Relief Emergency Fund allocation of 500,000 Swiss francs, which was activated to ensure resources are available immediately.
