Burundi - ICRC Annual Report 2009

19-05-2010 Annual Report No 2009

For 37 years until 1999, the ICRC monitored the situation in Burundi and took action on an ad hoc basis. Since then, it has been present in the country, focusing on helping people to overcome the worst consequences of armed conflict. It works with the prison authorities to ensure that detainees are treated according to internationally recognized standards. It rehabilitates water and sanitation systems for vulnerable groups. It restores family links, including reuniting children with their parents. It also supports training in IHL for the armed and security forces.
