Present in Nigeria since 1988 (and during the civil war in 1967 - 1970), the ICRC helps people affected by armed conflict and violence, particularly in the north-east, the Middle Belt and the Niger Delta states.

Our work in the country focuses on:

  • supporting Nigerian health facilities treating displaced persons and victims of armed violence;
  • responding to the consequences of armed violence;
  • improving access to water, sanitation and shelter;
  • working with the Nigerian Red Cross Society;
  • promoting international humanitarian law and international standards in law enforcement;
  • promoting detainee welfare;
  • restoring contact between separated families.
