Liberia - ICRC Annual Report 2009

19-05-2010 Annual Report No 2009

The ICRC has worked in Liberia since 1970, opening its delegation in Monrovia in 1990. Following intense fighting early in 2003 and the subsequent signing of a peace agreement, the ICRC stepped up its operations in Liberia. Since 2005, assistance and protection activities have focused on returnees (former IDPs and refugees) and residents, the wounded and sick, detainees, and children separated from their families. These activities are now drawing to an end. The ICRC supports the Liberian Red Cross Society and runs programmes to promote IHL among armed forces present in Liberia.
