Côte d’Ivoire: The ICRC and the Red Cross Society of Côte d’Ivoire have treated almost 80 people injured during recent clashes in Duékoué, in the west of the country, where they are continuing to help 12,000 displaced persons.
SUDAN: The ICRC is providing clean, solar-powered drinking water for people in remote, conflict-prone areas.
AUSTRALIA: Australian Red Cross volunteers are responding to record setting floods by operating evacuation centers, distributing resources, and helping thousands of people let their family and friends know that they’re safe and well.
