Prior to the conflict in Syria, the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) was a very different organization with a very different mission.
The Syrian Arab Red Crescent volunteers are carrying SARC's emblem on their chests and forgetting their names while confronting danger, penetrating the walls of pain and fear, while planting hope and reassurance, with all sense of responsibility and far away from consideration, but with full impartiality and neutrality.
The Syrian Arab Red Crescent is a humanitarian organization, voluntary, elected, non-profitable, with its own prestigious character, and has its own financial and administrative independence, founded in 1942 and was recognized by the International Movement of 1946.
Since the founding of this organization it has played a significant role in responding to crises experienced in the region, and it has provided assistance to our brothers, the Iraqis, the Lebanese and the Palestinians, and during the current crisis in Syria, it has responded to the humanitarian situation in collaboration with its partners inside and outside Syria.
The Syrian Arab Red Crescent provided, by responding to the current situation, a number of martyrs and wounded volunteers and staff while performing their humanitarian duty, I can only ask for mercy for those martyrs, and gratitude for the noble humanitarian work that they have done keeping across Syria.
In conclusion I reiterate my gratitude and appreciation for all those volunteers in the Syrian Arab Red Crescent, who have played the most important and prominent role in the current circumstances that prevailed in the country to provide a helping hand to those affected and to save the lives of wounded, and as for me, I will not be the one who will thank them, but the Syrians are the ones who will remember them and talk about their noble work.
