Kudos to Jeff Codallo for recently completing the International Humanitarian Law (IHL) Instructor Course. This authorizes him to instruct and make presentations on International Humanitarian Law for the Red Cross.
On August 12, 1949, the four Geneva Conventions in their current form came into being. Now adopted by every nation, these laws place basic limits on how war is waged – protecting civilians, wounded and sick combatants, and prisoners of war. They are the cornerstone of international humanitarian law and are forever linked to the Red Cross. Want to learn more? Ask Jeff!
