• About CIVIC

    CIVIC is a Washington-based non-profit organization that believes the civilians injured and the families of those killed should be recognized and helped by the warring parties involved.

    On this blog, you will find stories from our travels around the world as we meet with civilians and military, aid organizations and government in our quest to get war victims the help they need.

An update from HQ

It’s been a couple of weeks since we’ve blogged, but we’ve been kept very busy here at CIVIC. This week is a big one—today we released a joint report with Refugees International on civilian protection and amends in Libya and on Thursday we’ll be releasing a report on civilian harm in Somalia supported by UNHCR.

What’s more, we’ve just been named to the Catalogue for Philanthropy, Washington DC’s 2011 list as “One of the best small charities in the Greater Washington region.”

So expect more updates here on civilians in conflict soon, including a blog from Sarah on Thursday.  Until then, follow us on twitter @civicworldwide and facebook.
