A photo exhibition marking 150 years of humanitarian action was held in Dhaka in June. It was inaugurated by His Excellency Foreign Minister Mr. Abul Hassan Mahmood Ali, M.P. Among the 71 photos on display was a selection of images showing work carried out by the ICRC in Bangladesh, particularly between 1971 and 1975. During that period, among its many activities in the country, the ICRC distributed around 2.8 million Red Cross messages which helped reunite several hundred families dispersed by conflict.
