On Wednesday 15th May, members of the Senate table, led by its president, Teresa Efua Asangono, granted an audience to the Director General for gender from the International Committee of the Red Cross for Africa, Patricia Danzi, in order to strengthen inter-institutional cooperation between the two institutions.
The meeting began with the presentation of the First and Second vice-Presidents of the Senate, A�ngel Serafin Seriche Dougan Malabo and Agustin Nze Nfumu, the first spokesperson, Atanasio Ela Ntugu Nsa, and the two secretaries of the table, Martin Crisanto Ebee Mba and Crispin Jaime Sangale Rondo, among other figures.
The meeting served for the two delegations to look into the need to promote initiatives to support those displaced by wars, and to outline strategies to reduce the impact of nuclear weapons on the African continent.
Accompanied by the legal adviser Alexandra Ortiz, the Director General for Gender from the International Committee of the Red Cross and the Red Crescent, explained the operations and aims pursued by the international organisation based on International Humanitarian Law and the need for these laws to be respected at all times in order that work can be carried out during disasters and armed conflicts.
It is also worth pointing out that the Red Cross And Red Crescent movement, with its headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, is governed by the principles of humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary work, unity and universality.
