Sudan - ICRC Annual Report 2009

19-05-2010 Annual Report No 2009

The ICRC opened an office in Khartoum in 1978. In 1984, it initiated operations in the context of the armed conflict between government forces and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army, later adapting its programmes to the transition to peace. Since 2004, it has responded to needs arising from the hostilities in Darfur. It works to ensure that people directly affected by armed conflict are protected in accordance with IHL, receive emergency aid, medical care and livelihood support, and can re-establish family links. It works with the Sudanese Red Crescent Society and provides leadership for other Movement partners active in Sudan.
