In Ethiopia, the ICRC supports conflict and violence-affected people with food and essential items, helps to establish livelihoods and incomes, builds and maintains water-supply systems, provides health structure with medical supplies, visits detainees, reunites separated families due to conflict, provides physical rehabilitation and promotes IHL. For many of these activities, we work closely with the Ethiopian Red Cross.

Our delegation to the African Union highlights humanitarian issues, promotes IHL throughout Africa and raises awareness of the ICRC's work on the continent.
