Central African Republic - ICRC Annual Report 2009

19-05-2010 Annual Report No 2009

The ICRC opened a delegation in the Central African Republic (CAR) in 2007 in the context of the non-international armed conflict in the north of the country, but has carried out activities in the CAR since 1983. It protects and assists people affected by armed conflict or other situations of violence, providing emergency aid, carrying out livelihood-support projects and rehabilitating water and sanitation facilities. It also visits detainees, restores family links for people separated by conflict, promotes IHL among the authorities, armed forces, armed groups and civil society, and supports the development of the Central African Red Cross Society.
