    No material enticement for Red Cross volunteers-ICPC president


    Peter Maurer, president, International Committee for Red Cross, Sunday in Lagos, south-west Nigeria dropped a bombshell.

    Maurer told some of the 800,000 Red Cross volunteers in Lagos that there is no material reward or enticement for them.

    His words: “Volunteerism is a humanitarian service and government and donor agencies are not too excited about supporting humanitarian works, since it is not a politically motivated project”.

    Speaking on his visit to the Lagos state branch of the Nigerian Red Cross Society, the ICRC leader however appealed to the Red Cross volunteers to continue with their humanitarian service.

    This is despite the realities that humanitarian service is a thankless job.
