The ICRC in the Americas
ICRC priorities in the Americas are fourfold: to protect people deprived of their freedom, to clarify the fate of people missing in connection with past and current conflicts, to protect and assist people caught up in armed conflict and other forms of violence and to promote international humanitarian law and the role of the ICRC.
The ICRC's work in Colombia involves protecting civilians, helping displaced persons and conflict-affected communities, visiting detainees and promoting IHL.
The Port-au-Prince ICRC delegation covers Haiti and the Dominican Republic. In Haiti, its main humanitarian activities are visiting detainees and aiding the Haitian Red Cross and other Movement partners in the safe provision of services to residents of violence-prone areas.
