TEHRAN, 8 May 2023 (IRCS) - Issuing a message on the occasion of World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day, the President of the Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS), Pir Hossein Kolivand, appreciated their efforts in humanitarian works and emphasized: “Thanks to the volunteers, aid workers, youth, medical staff and the efforts of its committed employees, the Red Crescent has reached the heights of honor.
“Those who volunteer to serve the people create a more beautiful world for themselves and others because in the world of volunteering, the sun of hope never sets and consciences are always awake to solve people's problems. War, disease, earthquake and flood have failed in front of the kindness of volunteers because the most modern weapons, the deadliest diseases and the heaviest natural disasters do not benefit from the love and affection that is like a priceless treasure in the hearts of the volunteers and the miracle of this hidden treasure guarantee the victory of the volunteers in all rigorous tests,” wrote the IRCS president in his message.
“As the second home of the volunteers, the Red Crescent and the Red Cross Societies are the protectors of the loving hearts of these angelic people, and World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day is only a short opportunity to appreciate the volunteers, but the prayers of the people whose problems are solved by the healing hands of the volunteers is the best thanks to the volunteers,” he added.
