Red Cross to expand activities in Syria

9 April 2012

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) says there are growing humanitarian needs in Syria because of the ongoing unrest and violence in several parts of the country.

The President of the ICRC Jakob Kellenberger was in Syria last week where he discussed with authorities the expansion of the agency’s humanitarian work in the country.

The ICRC and the Syrian Arab Red Crescent have been working in some of the hardest hit areas of the country.

ICRC spokesperson, Rabab Al-Rifai spoke with Derrick Mbatha about the aid agency’s presence in Syria.
