10/05/2014 (Anadolu Agency – Turkey): Turkish Red Crescent cannot remain unresponsive to a humanitarian crisis, which left half of 4.6 million people vulnerable in the Central African Republic (CAR), director general of the organization told Anadolu Agency. Mehmet Gulluoglu said the tragedy is escalating in the region where it is difficult to deliver humanitarian aid due to geographical conditions and logistics. He said Turkish Red Crescent has initiated its efforts to deliver aid. “We do not want CAR to turn into Rwanda,” said Director General Gulluoglu, reminding that around 800,000 people were killed in Rwanda during its civil war in 1994 when the international community was late to intervene. Between April and July 1994, Rwanda’s Hutu extremists conducted an organized campaign aimed at wiping out the Tutsi minority. Gulluoglu also asked international organizations such as the UN and EU not to remain unresponsive to the violence acts in conflict-torn CAR, urging them to provide assistance in delivering aid. ..
