Keynote address by H.R.H. Princess Margriet, Chairwoman of the Standing Commission
It is an honour and a great pleasure for me to welcome you on behalf of the Standing Commission to the 28th International Conference of the Red Cross and Red Crescent. I am delighted to see so many participants gathered here this evening. It is of particular value and importance at a time when we live in a polarized, anxious world with so much suffering. A troubled world far removed from the high humanitarian ideals of Henry Dunant, the founder of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.
