Peter Maurer said : “It’s one of the most positive signs that I have experienced as a president over the last couple of years, that even after particularly publicised security incidents we had an increase in interest in working for the ICRC. Last year, we had a couple of hundred openings in the ICRC for field positions during the year, and we had between 16,000 and 18,000 applicants around the world. That was an increase from the past year of 15-20%. The spirit of neutral humanitarianism is strongly rooted in society and the young generation in particular,” External link

Peter Maurer said ( about Lake Chad ) : "I have been deeply moved this week by the people I've met. So many lives have been torn apart.

Governments in the region need enhanced international support," External link
