CICR, 1999

Liberia, 1999 - a country weakened by years of horrific war. The ICRC organized a series of concerts, sporting and other events designed to foster respect for humanitarian principles and the Geneva Conventions:
- a unique football match illustrating the need to observe the 'rules of the game' and featuring George Weah, a native of Liberia who was crowned FIFA World Player of the Year 1995;
- an open-air concert given by Lucky Dube - the first international star to perform in Liberia since the war - before an audience bringing together civilians and military personnel;
- the unveiling of a statue, the work of Liberian artists, in Monrovia's main square, to mark the 50th anniversary of the Geneva Conventions.
The ICRC also set up role-playing and other practical exercises for the military to demonstrate the application of international humanitarian law.
