Where: Geneva

Seychelles Red Cross disseminator Roddy Cafrine presents a set of IHL publications to the Chief of Staff of the Seychelles People’s Defence Forces, Colonel Clifford Roseline. 
Joe Samy and Patrick Joseph entertain guests at the Seychelles campaign launch. 

In the Seychelles, the 7 May campaign launch took on an artistic touch, with the Mont Fleuri national theatre at Mahe provided the ideal setting. Programme highlights included the film “Story of an idea” and testimonies from volunteers, including a poem written for the occasion by Clita Milius. Live musicians provided a musical backdrop to the message of the campaign, and their songs appear on a CD produced by the Seychelles Red Cross Society, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.

More serious matters were not forgotten, with the Seychelles Red Cross Society presenting a set of IHL publications to the Seychelles People’s Defence Forces.

Finally, a quote from the National Society’s internal report on their 7 May activities: One hundred and fifty years ago, one simple action by one individual led to the realization of the Red Cross Movement, one of the biggest humanitarian organizations in the world. One dream, one idea made all the difference in the world.
