Danish Red Cross appreciates Governing Board colleagues

TEHRAN/COPENHAGEN, 22 December 2020 (IRCS) - Danish Red Cross President Mr Sven Bak-Jensen has appreciated the collaboration of Governing Board members of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) including the Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS) in 2020.

The message of Mr Bak-Jensen reads as follows:


Dear Governing Board colleagues,

Precisely one year ago the international conference adopted the resolution “Time to act: Tackling epidemics and pandemics together”. It turned out to be very prophetic. 2020 has been marked by the Covid-19 pandemic, and we have all been busy responding to new and more complex humanitarian needs at home and abroad in line with our mandate. 2020 has been a year we will never forget.

We here at the Danish Red Cross would like to convey our appreciation of our collaboration in the IFRC Governing Board and look forward to a continued fruitful collaboration in 2021 with the aim of building a stronger Federation and stronger National Societies.

Season’s Greetings and Best Wishes for the New Year!
