Guinea - ICRC Annual Report 2009

19-05-2010 Annual Report No 2009

In Guinea since 1970, the ICRC opened its delegation in Conakry in 2001. It seeks to protect people affected by armed conflict and other situations of violence, restore family links, and improve water supply. It also visits detainees and advises the detaining authorities on detentionrelated matters. In parallel, it promotes IHL among the armed and security forces, political authorities, the media and the public. Since 2009, the delegation has provided support for the ICRC office in Sierra Leone. It works with each National Society to strengthen its capacity to respond to emergencies, promote the Red Cross and restore family links.
