El Salvador

We work to alleviate the humanitarian consequences of violence.

The International Committee of the Red Cross had a permanent presence during the country's internal armed conflict, carrying out its humanitarian activities between 1980 and 1993. 

In April 2012, the ICRC resumed its presence in El Salvador to assist people affected by armed violence, including migrants and returnees, people displaced by violence, missing persons and their families, and communities affected by violence. The ICRC also visits some detention centres to monitor the conditions of persons deprived of their liberty in order to provide advice and accompaniment to prison authorities.

This country is covered by the regional delegation in Mexico.
