Our world. Views from the field. The impact of conflicts and armed violence on civilians

“Displacement, separation from family members and a lack of access to basic necessities are among people’s most common experiences and biggest fears. This was revealed by an ICRC survey “Our world. Views from the field”, published to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Solferino, which prompted the creation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. 56% of the people directly affected by conflicts have been displaced, over half have lost contact with a family member and one in five has lost their livelihood.”
