Georgia

In Georgia, the ICRC helps to reconnect families separated by conflict and support people whose lives are affected by the administrative boundary lines. We seek to clarify what happened to missing people and provide support to their families. We visit detainees, working to improve their living conditions and those of people affected by past conflicts, while always promoting international humanitarian law.
