The ICRC has been operating in Chad since 1978. It focuses on protecting and assisting people internally displaced, detained or otherwise affected by non-international armed conflict or other situations of violence, or by the spillover of hostilities in the neighbouring Darfur region of Sudan. It provides emergency aid, implements projects to help restore economic security, supports treatment for the wounded, including amputees, visits detainees and restores family links, primarily for Sudanese refugees. The ICRC also pursues longstanding programmes to promote IHL among the authorities,weapon bearers and civil society and supports the Red Cross of Chad.
