"Venezuela: Reaching for their dreams in La Cota 905

The ICRC is drawing on its expertise in various fields to help alleviate suffering caused by armed violence in Venezuela. That means maintaining confidential dialogue with all weapon bearers on using force appropriately and preventing harm to people affected by armed violence; helping people meet their immediate needs and maintain or restore their livelihoods; renovating essential community spaces, such as schools and hospitals; and always listening to people’s needs and keeping their concerns at the heart of what we do.
