Red Cross launches new humanitarian campaign - 11.05.2009 -Seychelles Nation

The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement has launched a new campaign to point out the vulnerability of people affected by today’s most pressing humanitarian challenges.

The campaign – Our World, Your Move – was launched locally on Thursday at the National Theatre as part of activities to commemorate Red Cross and Red Crescent Day, which coincided with the 20th birthday of the Red Cross Society of Seychelles (RCSS).
It also marked the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Solferino, in Italy, which led to the creation of the Red Cross and later the Red Crescent.

Public health commissioner Dr Jude Gedeon, Chief of Staff of the Seychelles People’s Defence Forces (SPDF) Colonel Clifford Roseline, Bishop James Wong of the Anglican Church, and members and volunteers of the RCSS were among those present.

On behalf of the SPDF, Colonel Roseline accepted a batch of international humanitarian law (IHL) publications from the RCSS.
IHL provides a framework of protection for civilians and combatants alike in times of war, and it is part of the RCSS’s mandate to educate the public and forces such as the army and police about its guiding principles.

Colonel Roseline said the SPDF’s presence at the event is the product of its excellent cooperative and productive relations with the RCSS.
