On 29 of October, as the Red Cross Red Crescent commemorates the 150th anniversary of the international conference that laid the foundation of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, we seek to bring urgent attention to one of the major humanitarian crises of today: the on-going crisis in Syria.
Today, we call on all parties to the conflict in Syria to respect the work of the Red Cross and Red Crescent, and to guarantee the safety of aid workers and their unimpeded, immediate access to people in need across the country. We also call on all those who have an influence on the ground to help us ensure aid can reach those most in need.
Syrian Arab Red Crescent volunteers and staff need to have more and safer access to those most in need in Syria. Intentional targeting of aid workers, who play no part in the conflict and who simply seek to help those most in need, is unacceptable.
From now until the International Volunteer Day on 5 December, join us in calling for respect and protection for our volunteers and staff who every day risk their lives in the effort of saving others.
