When war broke out in Angola in 1975, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) arrived on the scene. By the late 1980s, Angola was the Red Cross’s largest operation in Africa, assisting thousands of victims of land mines and also working to re-unite Angolans, especially children, separated by war. Now the ICRC is closing its delegation in Luanda. The Angola Field Group invites you to a presentation,“The End of an Era – The International Red Cross in Angola“, Thursday, May 28, at 8:00 PM at the Viking Club, with Maryse Limoner who was stationed in Angola from 1996-97 and has been the Head of Delegation from 2007-09.
Here’s a link to the ICRC in Angola’s website with photos and project info.
