Phnom Penh, May 08, 2019 –Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen expressed here this morning his appreciation for the Cambodian Red Cross (CRC)’s mission and contribution to local humanitarian activities and international communities.
Addressing to the celebration of the 156th anniversary of World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day held at the CRC’s headquarters in Phnom Penh under the theme “I Love Cambodian Red Cross”, Samdech Techo Hun Sen voiced his full support for the celebration’s theme, saying that “Love” is important for all the people, and without “Love”, we would not have been united as currently.

The Cambodian Premier highlighted some natural and man-made disasters in some particular countries and encouraged the CRC to further look at these issues.
