Burkina Faso

In close collaboration with the Burkinabe Red Cross Society, in areas affected by armed violence, the ICRC assists displaced people, organizes cattle vaccination campaigns and facilitates access to health care and clean water. We also visit detainees and promote respect for international humanitarian law (IHL).

The ICRC distributes a corn-soya blend to an infant and his mother in Djibo, Burkina Faso.

Our work with the Burkina Faso Red Cross

In the regional delegation, cooperation work is based above all on providing support to the National Society to develop its capacities. Cooperation is an active part of the humanitarian response before, during and after emergencies or conflicts. Among our most important activities are responding to migration in the region, training first aid teams that work in dangerous areas and delicate situations and strengthening accountability, transparency and financial sustainability mechanisms.
