A high-profile delegation from Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has visited Chad, Cameroon, and Kenya to communicate with fellow national societies and build relations with the components of the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement, with a special focus on Africa.
QRCS's delegation comprised Secretary-General Ali bin Hassan al-Hammadi and Head of International Relations Dr Fawzi Oussedik.
During its four-day stay in Chad, the delegation visited the Red Cross of Chad and some humanitarian projects for the vulnerable communities.
The two parties agreed to hold another meeting in Algeria, with a view to more understanding, in the form of a framework co-operation agreement.
After that, the delegation travelled to Cameroon, where they held talks with Cameroon Red Cross Society (CRCS). In order to push mutual relations forward, the top officials of the host national society were invited to Doha, to attend the Disaster Management Camp (DMC) to be held in March 2020.
During a field tour of some operations of CRCS, potential humanitarian projects were proposed to meet the needs of the local community.
A series of meetings were held with the president, board members, and international relations director of CRCS, as well as the IRCS representative in Cameroon.
The last destination was Kenya, where a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Kenya Red Cross was signed as a legal framework of co-operation in the coming years.
