President Asif Ali Zardari has appreciated Pakistan Red Crescent Society (PRCS) for its dedication and professionalism shown by it during earthquake and rehabilitation of internally displaced persons.In a message on the eve of World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day, to be celebrated on May 8, the President congratulated the PRCS and its international affiliates. Following is the text of meassage: We celebrate today World Red Cross Red Crescent Day, to pay our respect to the relentless efforts of The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement to serve the humanity. I wish to congratulate Pakistan Red Crescent Society (PRCS) and its international affiliates on celebrating May 08 as World Red Crescent and Red Cross Day. The dedication and professionalism demonstrated by PRCS in the humanitarian cause, particularly during the earthquake and rehabilitation of internally displaced persons have won respect and admiration of the people. The humanitarian services provided by them to the most vulnerable sections of society are indeed most commendable. Humanitarian work by its very definition and nature has to be non discriminatory and beyond considerations of religion, caste and creed. I deeply appreciate that the PRCS has been extending its services without any discrimination on the basis of nationality, race, religion, class, colour, creed, gender or political opinion. This day also reminds us the efforts of so many other welfare organizations and individuals who have kept the spirit of humanitarian values alive and continued to pursue this noble cause. The present government wishes to address this neglect of the past and intends to engage every segment of the society to same fellow human beings regardless of caste and creed, support communities and inculcate a spirit of self help. I hope that Pakistan will continue to benefit from PRCS and other philanthropist organizations, who will continue their mission of selfless and devoted service to the people. I wish them success in all humanitarian endeavours.
