The ICRC regional delegation in Lima

Ayacucho. The remains of people who were missing for more than 20 years are transferred to their loved ones who keep watch over them. The ICRC helps the families of the missing learn the fate of their loved ones who disappeared during the years of violence.

The regional delegation in Lima coordinates the ICRC's activities in Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru. It closely monitors the humanitarian consequences of past and present conflicts in the region, visits detainees and promotes efforts to establish the fate of missing persons. It helps security forces adapt their procedures to international legal norms and offers capacity-building for the region's National Red Cross Societies.
