Addressing a ceremony held in Tehran on the occasion of World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day, the Iranian president also lauded the efforts made by the organization during the coronavirus pandemic.
The president noted that the organization should be equipped with new technologies in an effort to make it more efficient. He also said that the IRCS should modernize its aerial and ground fleet.
He also underlined that the Iranian Red Crescent Society has no political, geographical, ethnic or religious boundaries. In April, the Iranian Red Crescent Society was honored by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for their efforts during the February 17th earthquake which killed more than 50,000 both in Türkiye and Syria.
In 2022, the IRCS was granted Henry Davison Award, the prestigious humanitarian prize.
