ERDOĞAN SENT A MESSAGE TO THE CONGRESS
In the message he sent to the congress, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said, “There is not a single natural disaster in our region or in our country that the Red Crescent is not there. May the Red Crescent’s heart-warming red crescent fluctuate. Most of the time, you are the first to hear the cry for help to the needy before the official institutions, you are the first to run for help” and wished success to the new administration.
In his speech, Vice President Fuat Oktay, who attended the congress, said, “The fact that we have brand organizations such as the Red Crescent with high organizational capabilities and equipment is the result of our being a strong and assertive state.” Recalling the period he was the Afad Presidency, Oktay said, “I saw the Red Crescent in every disaster I went to as the Afad President.”
“WE EXIST TO BE THE VOICE OF THE GLOBAL CONSCIOUSNESS”
In his speech, Red Crescent President Kerem Kınık said, “We exist to be the voice of the global conscience. Today, humanitarian crises in Sub-Saharan Africa, in the Lake Chad basin, in the Ethiopian Tigre region, in many geographies of the world, in Bangladesh, in Somalia, and in many different geographies, unfortunately, do not receive the necessary attention. We have to awaken the global conscience, strengthen global solidarity, awaken and mobilize humanity in a way that is aware of humanity,” he said.
