    Esteemed President of Turkmenistan

    Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov:

    “National  society  of  the  Red  Crescent  of  Turkmenistan,  operating  since  1926

    according to the main principles of the International Red Cross Movement and the

    Red Crescent, namely: humanism, neutrality, independence and volunteering is

    the reliable partner to the state on providing humanitarian help to the people of

    Turkmenistan in a daily life and emergency situations”

     

     

     

     

     

     Under the leadership of the wise policy of the President of Turkmenistan, all measures are being taken in our country to reduce the occurrence of risks of natural disasters and their early warning. In this regard, the drafting of the law on the provision of international humanitarian aid in emergency situations was initiated by the National Red Crescent Society of Turkmenistan and the Ministry of Defense of Turkmenistan in accordance with the law-making plan of Mejlis of Turkmenistan for 2018-2022. In 2018, a working group was created to prepare a draft of this Law. The draft was distributed among all the stakeholders, agencies and ministries, NRCST and IFRC for consideration and commenting. Since then, the working group has held several meetings to introduce the proposed changes.
      On July 30, 2019 in Ashgabat, a workshop was held on the laws, regulations and principles of the provision of international humanitarian aid in emergency situations, organized by IFRC jointly with Mejlis of Turkmenistan and the NRCST. The workshop was attended by delegates of the country's parliament, representatives of ministries and agencies of Turkmenistan, representatives of IFRC, UN agencies accredited in Turkmenistan and NRCST staff.
     IFFC Deputy Secretary General, Mr. Jagannath Chapagain, IFRC Coordinator for Legislative Initiatives, Ms. Isabelle Granger and Head of the IFRC Office in Central Asia, Ms. Bayarma Luntan, were invited as international experts.
     Welcoming speeches were delivered by the Deputy Secretary General of the IFRC, Mr. Jagannath Chapagain, the Director General of the National Red Crescent Society of Turkmenistan, Ms. Gulnabat Dovletova and the member of the Committee of the Mejlis of Turkmenistan for International and Inter-Parliamentary Relations, Mr. Nury Komekov.
During the workshop, presentations were made by representatives of the Mejlis of Turkmenistan, the Ministry of Defense of Turkmenistan, the UN Office in Turkmenistan, the National Red Crescent Society of Turkmenistan, as well as the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
     During the workshop, the structure and provisions of the draft law "On the provision of international humanitarian aid in emergency situations" were examined in detail. Issues on the mechanisms of international assistance of the IFRC, as well as the international humanitarian response coordination system were discussed.
      The importance of adopting such a law in every country worldwide is beyond all doubts. The lack of a national regulatory framework in this field impedes the provision of international aid from abroad. In this regards, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies suggested recommendations, developed by IFRC “IDRL Checklist”, “Introduction to the guidelines on domestic assistance and regulation of international aid during the emergencies and assistance in carrying out recovery works”, “Model emergency decree on assistance in regulation of international aid during the natural disasters and catastrophes and assistance in carrying out early recovery works ", as well as "Model law on assistance in the regulation of international aid during the natural disasters and catastrophes and assistance in carrying out early recovery works" for the workshop’s participants consideration.

 

THE FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES

– Humanity

The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, born of a desire to bring assistance
without discrimination to the wounded on the battlefield, endeavours, in its international and
national capacity, to prevent and alleviate human suffering wherever it may be found. Its purpose
is to protect life and health and to ensure respect for the human being. It promotes mutual
understanding, friendship, cooperation and lasting peace amongst all peoples.

– Impartiality

It makes no discrimination as to nationality, race, religious beliefs, class or political opinions. It
endeavors to relieve the suffering of individuals, being guided solely by their needs, and to give
priority to the most urgent cases of distress.

– Neutrality

In order to continue to enjoy the confidence of all, the Movement may not take sides in hostilities or
engage at any time in controversies of a political, racial, religious or ideological nature.

– Independence

The Movement is independent. The National Societies, while auxiliaries in the humanitarian services
of their governments and subject to the laws of their respective countries, must always maintain
their autonomy so that they may be able at all times to act in accordance with the principles of the
Movement.

– Voluntary service

It is a voluntary relief movement not prompted in any manner by desire for gain.

– Unity

There can be only one Red Cross or one Red Crescent Society in any one country. It must be open
to all. It must carry on its humanitarian work throughout its territory.

– Universality

The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, in which all Societies have equal status
and share equal responsibilities and duties in helping each other, is worldwide.

     I have been working at the National Red Crescent Society of Turkmenistan since 2002. Over the past 16 years. Taking part in the activities of the National Society, I has witnessed many people expressing their gratitude for the support received.
      I am proud of current achievements of the National Society. Today the National Red Crescent Society of Turkmenistan has become the most recognized organization in all parts of our country for its humanitarian activities. People who address the National Society with their problems receive not only material, but also psychological support from the staff. In addition, staff of the National Society is carrying out large-scale activities to educate the population of rendering the first aid, as well as prevention of communicable and non-communicable diseases, harmful effects of bad habits and promote healthy living. Staff members of the National Society by achieving the goals set clearly demonstrate the effective performance of the auxiliary role of the National Society.
