The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is active in Mozambique and working closely with the Mozambique Red Cross Society (CVM) to assist communities affected by armed violence. It maintains a dialogue with public authorities, armed groups and communities so that it can reach the most vulnerable with assistance and interventions that protect their lives and dignity.
In 2017, the ICRC in partnership with the CVM distributed essential household goods, farming tools, and agricultural inputs to people displaced by armed violence. Our teams improved access to safe drinking water for thousands and repaired ambulances to support health outreach activities.
As part of our efforts to promote international humanitarian law, the ICRC conducted dissemination sessions and trainings.
