Regional delegation in Harare - ICRC Annual Report 2009

19-05-2010 Annual Report No 2009

The Harare regional delegation has existed in its current form since 1981, although the ICRC has been present in some of the countries covered for much longer. It visits and assists detainees in Namibia and Zimbabwe and assists civilians in Zimbabwe. It also helps family members separated by armed conflicts in the region restore contact. It informs the authorities, the armed and security forces and the general public about IHL, human rights law and the ICRC’s mandate, and helps the region’s National Societies develop their operational capacities.
