ICRC President Peter Maurer was in the DRC last week to take stock of our operation and the humanitarian situation in the country.

In Goma, Mr. Maurer spoke of daily attacks against civilians taking place "amid total indifference" and called on the parties and the international community to urgently work for greater respect for IHL.

Mr. Maurer was in Paris yesterday, asking donors for broader support, including for our DRC operation. He provides a dramatic picture of the overall humanitarian situation and explains that we will aim to increase our programs in the DRC, particularly in the east of the country.
