Venezuela: Working together with communities
In the second quarter of 2022, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) continued to address the needs of people affected by armed violence in the states of Caracas, Miranda, Bolívar, Táchira, Apure, Zulia, Aragua and Falcón. We involved affected people at every stage of the process, ensuring they were able to take an active role in finding solutions to improve life in their community.
As always, the Fundamental Principles of humanity, impartiality, neutrality and independence underpinned our operations across the country, which included improving the infrastructure of health care centres, places of detention and forensic facilities, and upgrading essential services in affected communities, A We also continued our work in two other important areas: reconnecting people separated from their loved ones and developing livelihoods projects to help strengthen people's economic security.
