Yemen - ICRC Annual Report 2009

19-05-2010 Annual Report No 2009

The ICRC has been working in Yemen since the outbreak of the civil war in 1962. It works with the Yemeni Red Crescent Society to assist civilians affected by hostilities in northern Yemen. It promotes the incorporation of IHL into national legislation and its introduction into academic curricula and into the training programmes of the armed and police forces. Physical rehabilitation centres also receive assistance. ICRC tracing activities enable refugees to restore family links and Yemeni nationals to locate and contact relatives detained/interned abroad. The ICRC also seeks to resume visits to detainees in accordance with its standard procedures.
