Philippines: Providing support to weapon-wounded in Mindanao

10 October 2016

Internal armed conflicts and other situations of violence have affected the region of Mindanao in southern Philippines for decades. As a consequence, many lives are lost while others are permanently maimed or seriously harmed.

The ICRC continues to strengthen its healthcare response in the most volatile areas by supporting local health structures and their staff to ensure immediate and proper first aid and care for weapon-wounded people, as well as for their physical rehabilitation.
