This honor belongs to our employees, branches, volunteers, young ones and our women who wave our country’s and Red Crescent’s flag throughout the world. This honor belongs to Mr. Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Red Crescent’s Honorary President as per our statute and the President of the Republic of Turkey, who has always paved the way right in front of us. And we headed the race with the supports of our government, our nation and supports of suffering people, and many other people who have hope in this geography. We have a lot of work to do for the Federation in the new period. We will move new approaches of Turkish Red Crescent to Europe relieve humanity’s agonies.
