MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE SWISS CONFEDERATION

JOHANN N. SCHNEIDER-AMMANN

9 The Swiss federal government and the Swiss Red Cross have been working closely together to help Nepal for more than 50 years. The two nations are drawn together by their similarities: their location between lowlands and mountain peaks, their existential dangers and tourism opportunities provided by geography and nature, and the knowledge and know-how of their people as their one major resource. I therefore consider it to be a highly fortuitous omen that the Red Cross Gala is being held in St. Moritz, a privileged resort in the Alps, in favour of Nepal whose mountain location time and again causes pain and suffering. For this reason, I was extremely pleased to be invited to be the honorary patron of this Gala. Thanks to its own experience, Switzerland has always been in a position to provide Nepal with support in the various areas of its development. We have striven to improve the safety of countless households by extending irrigation systems and building infrastructure such as roads and suspension bridges. Not only have the Nepalese been given a better foundation for improving their nutrition, but also better access to the outside world, markets, schools and health centres. We have also invested in reforestation to prevent landslides and flooding – something that will resonate with the people of the canton of Graubßnden. And we, the Swiss government and the Red Cross, are of course providing reconstruction assistance for those who were hard hit by the consequences of the earthquakes in April and May 2015. This is an expression of our commitment to Nepal that has been unwavering, even during the years of internal political conflict.

In the view of the Swiss government, political cooperation is also important. We stood by Nepal as it came out of civil war. And we want to continue supporting the country, by helping it establish and consolidate its governmental structures at all levels to ensure the rule of law, the democratic participation of all Nepalese in the political life of the country, and to safeguard human rights. Our collaboration with Nepal has always focused on improving the lives of the most vulnerable people living in remote regions. And this is the very reason for this evening's Red Cross Gala. The proceeds will be used to extend the safe water supply system, thereby preventing disease and improving people's lives. This is all part of the humanitarian vocation shared by the Swiss government and the Swiss Red Cross: protecting the health, life and dignity of human beings. I thank you, dear guests and sponsors of the Red Cross Gala, for your generosity and support in this major undertaking.

Johann N. Schneider-Ammann President of the Swiss Confederation

12 MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE SWISS RED CROSS

ANNEMARIE HUBER-HOTZ

In a region where water – whether free-flowing or frozen – adds so much to the beauty of our environment and quality of life, it is difficult to imagine that in other regions the opposite is true. In countries such as Nepal, an excess of water increasingly causes flooding and landslides, accompanied by disaster and destruction. At the same time, a lack of access to water forces people to walk for hours every day to fetch this vital resource, often a job left to children who then cannot go to school. And a lack of clean water is far too often the cause of infectious diseases that in many cases result in death. Our sympathy for Nepal has only become greater with the passing years. Our work there includes ensuring clean water supplies and improving the basic living standards of the poorest, most vulnerable people. Having access to clean water is a question of survival. This is why it is essential for it to be included in health promotion programmes that are part of the 'Victims of Forgotten Disasters' campaigns. It is even more important in the help we provide for the victims of a far-from-forgotten disaster, by which I mean the earthquake that hit Nepal barely a year ago, bringing so much additional distress to an already longsuffering population.

We run these programmes in Nepal as elsewhere to help people who struggle for survival every day. For many of them, the Red Cross is their only hope of finding better long-term prospects. Unquestionably, it is our duty to provide this hope. We are sincerely grateful to the guests and sponsors of the Red Cross Gala for giving us their generous support and thereby helping us turn this duty into tangible action. We would particularly like to thank all those involved in organizing this event. I am very pleased that you, dear guests, by attending this gala are once again displaying solidarity with extremely vulnerable people of this world. I thank you for your support and wish you all a most enjoyable evening.

150 YEARS PROVIDING GREATER HUMANITY

LIVING HUMANITARIAN TRADITION

Š ICRC

16 What grew from the seed planted by Henry Dunant and his friends 150 years ago? The Swiss Red Cross has grown into an impressive tree, visible throughout the country and with deep roots in the community. It is still important to protect human lives, health and dignity, and quickly provide assistance for people in need. "No more war" has remained wishful thinking. Quite the opposite. Resources are becoming scarce. Owing to extreme weather conditions and unstable political circumstances, the locations of refugee crises and famine are changing fast. Henry Dunant, founder of the International Committee of the Red Cross

The Red Cross is active everywhere.


© ICRC The battle of Solferino in June 1859 marked the birth of the Red Cross. The battlefield was littered with corpses and wounded soldiers. They died of their wounds, thirst and hunger because there was no-one to take care of them.

Birth of the Red Cross 1859: Solferino Have you ever seen a battle? Not in the newspaper or on TV, but a real one. Close enough for you to hear not only the shooting, but also the horses' hooves or the rumbling tanks, and the soldiers' screams. And yet far enough away for you not to be directly involved in the tumult. Henry Dunant witnessed a battle like this, when he was a young man on a business trip and wanted to meet Emperor Napoleon III. That was in Solferino, not far from Lake Garda where the French allies of Piedmont-Sardinia engaged in battle with the Austrian troops.

"The women of Castiglione, seeing that I made no distinction between nationalities, followed my example, showing the same kindness to all these men whose origins were so different, and all of whom were foreigners to them. 'Tutti fratelli' (all brothers), they repeated feelingly."

It was an experience to give anyone pause for thought. Yet very few people would be spurred into action. Once the cannons had fallen silent and the smoke had dispersed, the battlefield was littered with corpses and wounded soldiers. Most of the victims did not die during the fighting, but later on from their wounds or from a lack of water and food. Henry Dunant acted. He called for a relief operation and persuaded men and women from nearby Castiglione to help the wounded soldiers abandoned by their troops, regardless of whether they were French, Sardinian or Austrian.

Henry Dunant described the battle in a book and his account culminated in the demand for an international agreement to protect the victims of war. All countries were to set up relief societies to train volunteers – just like those who assisted him in Solferino – so that they could perform first aid.This was the birth of the Red Cross. In 1866 the Swiss Red Cross became the 11th national society to answer Henry Dunant's call to action: to train volunteers in times of peace to treat the wounded in times of war.

Assistance for refugees: the Swiss Red Cross was there in 1956 when Swiss Post vehicles brought 14,000 people to Switzerland after the Hungarian revolution. Nowadays Red Cross volunteers take care of refugees in various crisis situations around the world. For example, here in Lebanon, where they are distributing food parcels near the village of Ketermaya. The parcels are paid for by the SRC.

Assistance for refugees 1870–71: Internment of General Bourbaki's army What can be done if a whole army appears on the border and asks to be allowed in? Not because it wants to conquer the country, but to seek protection from its powerful opponent. What does a neutral country do then? Four years after it was founded, the Swiss Red Cross (SRC) faced its first major challenge as part of a relief operation. General Bourbaki's army of 85,000 exhausted and badly equipped soldiers and officers asked for asylum, having been beaten into retreat by German troops in the Jura mountains. The Red Cross was given the task of finding shelter for them throughout the country. At that time 2.6 million people lived in Switzerland, so the foreign troops made up 3% of the population. It was a huge effort for a small country.

Today the SRC still provides help for refugees and other people in distress, whether in their countries of origin, along their migration routes, or in Switzerland. For example, it supplies Syrian refugee families living in Syria's neighbouring countries with food, basic medical care and emergency treatment. Along their migration routes, Red Cross volunteers provide first aid for the large number of people who arrive each day. And in Switzerland the SRC assists migrants with the asylum procedure, helps them to integrate into society, and provides psychosocial counselling.

Disaster relief as core competence: the Swiss Red Cross had its first mission abroad in Messina in 1908. 'Swiss villages' were built as emergency shelters after the earthquake. In Nepal last year it became clear shortly after the earthquake that providing a roof over people's heads was an urgent need.

First deployment in a natural disaster 1908: Earthquake in Messina Have you ever had the ground disappear from under your feet? On 28 December 1908, at 5:20 am in the vicinity of the Strait of Messina, the strip of sea between Calabria and Sicily, a rumbling was heard and the earth started to shake. Most people were taken by surprise while they slept. As many as 65,000 people, almost half the population of Messina, died in the rubble. And after the earthquake came water: a tsunami gushed into the ruins of the coastal area, sweeping away whole villages with its powerful wave. For the Red Cross this was its first operation in response to a natural disaster. In Switzerland a call for donations went out – and in present-day value as much as 5 million francs was collected. The survivors were supplied with foodstuffs, clothing, bandages and medicines. Emergency shelters were built, including two 'Swiss villages' comprising 35 wooden chalets with Swiss names such as William Tell, Pestalozzi or Saint Gotthard. What do people need when they have lost everything? A roof over their heads.

Immediately after the earthquake struck Nepal last year, it was clear that the most urgent need was for a roof over their heads, clean water, food, and blankets. Even today it is just as important to protect human lives, health and dignity, and quickly provide assistance for people in need. Disaster preparation has become one of the SRC's most important sectors. As many as 97% of all fatalities in extreme natural disasters nowadays occur in developing countries. And they are always the poorest of the poor. But we do not need to go so far away. Just imagine if avalanche barriers and protective forest did not exist in our mountains. Many human lives have already been saved in Switzerland by the various preventative measures.


Š Lindenhof Nursing School Alumni Association Health as a core competence: millions died during the First World War, and then the Spanish flu struck. It was an enormous challenge for the health service in Switzerland. The SRC provided 750 nurses for hospitals and the medical services of the Swiss armed forces: 69 of them died during their mission.

Health as a core competence 1918–1920: Spanish flu Can you imagine? Someone has survived the war, perhaps as a soldier on the front line. Finally he arrives home. Only to die in bed from the flu. In November 1918 the First World War was over, and the armies had been demobilized. Everyone was exhausted, both the civilian population and the military. Exhausted and weary of a war, the likes of which Europe had never seen before, that had left millions dead, accompanied by revolutions and famines. Shortly before the guns finally fell silent, a flu epidemic arrived from America and swept across the weakened continent. It was particularly tragic that the Spanish flu, as it became known, should mainly affect men aged between 20 and 40. As if the remains of a generation that had spent its most hopeful years in the trenches should be completely wiped out. In all, 25 million people fell victim to the three waves of flu that ravaged Europe between 1918 and 1920. The Spanish flu was an enormous challenge for the health service in Switzerland. The SRC provided 750 nurses for hospitals and the medical services of the Swiss armed forces. As many as 69 of them paid for their devotion with their lives. Soon after it was founded, the SRC was not only training volunteers to care for the wounded in wartime but also professional nurses to care for the sick and injured in times of peace. An important milestone was the founding of the Lindenhof Red Cross nursing school in Bern. Up until then training for nurses had been in the hands of religious organizations. Now anyone was free to train as a nurse regardless of their religious affiliation

20 After the Second World War, the focus shifted more and more from helping the military to helping civilians. The SRC made a major contribution to setting up the healthcare and social services in Switzerland. Preserving, promoting and restoring human health has now become one of the SRC's main tasks. Helping marginalized sections of the population to play an active role in society, whether or not they have a migrant background, is another. Tens of thousands of volunteers and staff work in the Swiss Samaritans, the Swiss Life-Saving Association, the Swiss Disaster Dogs Association REDOG, the Swiss Army Medical Corps, the Swiss Air-Rescue Association Rega, the cantonal associations and at SRC headquarters.

Š SRC, Roland Blattner Today, the Swiss Red Cross works worldwide: Laos was the first country where the SRC carried out a medical aid project. Today, it is helping to set up health services and fight epidemics in about 30 countries. It is extremely important to help people whose situation no longer makes the headlines, but who are still suffering from the long-term consequences of violent conflicts and poverty-induced diseases.

Helping people to help themselves 1970: Development aid When people are given aid they come to rely on it. But is that inevitable? Laos 1970. On behalf of the Swiss government, the SRC sets up a medical aid project in Luang Pradang, a province of the SouthEast Asian country. Like many other countries, Laos has gained independence from colonial rule. Decolonization brings insecurity with it. Decolonization also had an impact on the work of the SRC. As many new states came into being, there were also many new national Red Cross or Red Crescent societies. But initially these were not in any position to take on specific projects. The SRC started submitting its own projects to these countries. These were projects that could be carried out in partnership with the local authorities and the local Red Cross or Red Crescent societies. The SRC's work focused on healthcare and reconstruction in the wake of natural disasters. How could we help without making the other country dependent? In China there's a saying: "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for life."

22 Poverty and social adversity are often less apparent in Switzerland than in the countries of the south. However, for those affected, often families, the hardships are no less difficult to endure. The SRC provides fast, effective help for people whose misfortunes are no fault of their own. With targeted financial support. Small contributions can often make a huge difference.

Being a part of something big. Working together to create something that can change the future. This year the Swiss Red Cross is not just any institution celebrating its 150th anniversary, but the best known and most multi-faceted organization in Switzerland.

C LEAN WATER FOR A HEALTHY LIFE IN NEPAL

Thanks to the long water pipe, Rita Sarki now has water close to her home in Diwang, Nepal. Rita used to have to walk five hours every day to fetch water.

26

Have a seat and take a sip of water from the glass in front of you! Just imagine, while you are quenching your thirst, what a blessing a glass of clean drinking water is for a child in Nepal. And just take a moment to fetch water with Rita Sarki from Nepal. Just 50 metres from her front door, there is a tap. Even though it has been there for a year, this source of water is still something special for Rita Sarki. Some children have already arrived. Laughing and chattering, they wait until 5 pm when the tap will be turned on. Now the women flock from all directions carrying the traditional metal canisters on their backs. None of the 60 families in the scattered mountain community of Diwang needs to walk more than 10 minutes to reach a tap. For those of us who are used to having running water inside our homes, even that would be a chore. Because it's not just drinking water that has to be carried, but all the water for washing clothes, daily hygiene, cooking and sometimes also for the livestock. Women's burden But for Rita Sarki and the other women of Diwang, everyday life has now become much easier. The 23-year-old remembers all too well how many hours she used to spend fetching water and how exhausting it was. She would set out before dawn for the remote water source. It took all her concentration not to lose her footing walking down the steep path. "Once I got to the source I had a long wait ahead of me," she explains. "The water flows so sparingly that it took forever to fill our canisters." She then had to carry the 20 litres back up to the mountain village. Eight to 10 times a day to meet the family's needs. Often she had backache in the evening. Or her head hurt. Most of the burden of this poverty is borne by women and girls, who in most societies are responsible for fetching water. Whether in Asia, Africa, or Latin America, millions of girls and women spend several hours each day carrying water from distant wells and rivers. Canister after canister, bucket after bucket, they haul

She then had to carry the 20 litres back up to the mountain village. Eight to 10 times a day to meet the family's needs.

Rita Sarki would set out before dawn for the remote water source. The terrain was steep and slippery.

the precious resource – while the boys are at school. For families, water is a much greater priority than educating their girls. Any society in which the women and girls waste most of their time and energy fetching water and where every year thousands of children die from diarrhoea is fated to remain incapable of fulfilling its potential. This is also true of economic development: according to the World Health Organization (WHO), as many as five billion working days and more than 440 million school days are lost every year in developing countries because so many people fall ill owing to unhygienic living conditions. Infants' health Thanks to the taps, some of the burden on women in the village has been lifted. But that's not the only improvement. Clean water and hygiene go hand in hand and are a prerequisite for good health and development. Whenever clean drinking water is rare, people have no choice but to drink poor quality water; for example from ponds. This is often contaminated with animal or human waste and causes severe diarrhoeal diseases. Every 20 seconds a child under five years old dies from a diarrhoeal disease because of contaminated water and a lack of hygiene. Almost all these fatalities occur in developing countries. Washing hands with soap, using latrines, drying crockery in the sun to kill germs, these hygiene measures have now become routine for the villagers in Diwang. No children have died in the 18 villages where the SRC has installed water pipes over the past few years.

The well becomes a meeting place twice a day when the tap is turned on. Nine taps guarantee that the women of Diwang no longer need to walk more than 10 minutes to fetch water.

Villagers' responsibility All the villagers lent a hand in building the new taps – a total of nine for the whole village – and the seven-kilometre long water pipe. Even Rita Sarki dug and shovelled for 45 days. "It's important for people to do their part and also to be responsible for maintenance. This brings down the cost and encourages the villagers to take better care of their water supply," explains Raj Kumar Kshetri, the Red Cross water programme coordinator. Experiences in various countries show that with a central water supply, women can better realize their own potential. They have more time and energy to spend looking after their children, tending their gardens, or are able take a paid job, thereby contributing to the well-being of the whole family. Shortly after the water tank was built, the women of Diwang were already planning to irrigate their gardens so that they could grow vegetables all year round and feed their families more healthily. The Red Cross ran courses to teach them how to do this. "As the water was in such short supply before, the villagers didn't have any experience of planting and irrigating their gardens. Thanks to the water tank, this has now changed," explains Raj Kumar Kshetri. The Red Cross has a long-term commitment to improving access to water, sanitary facilities and hygiene worldwide. The total proceeds of the 2016 gala are earmarked for the victims of forgotten disasters and the water programme in Nepal. We thank you for your trust in our work and your support.

This is the goal of the Global Water & Sanitation Initiative that the International Federation of Red Cross & Red Crescent Societies launched as part of the UN Decade 2005.

THE SWISS RED CROSS GALA BOARD Dear guests

On behalf of the Swiss Red Cross (SRC), we most warmly welcome you to the Swiss Red Cross Gala 2016 in St. Moritz. We are proud to be part of the launch of the 150th anniversary of the Swiss Red Cross, one of the most renowned NGOs worldwide. It’s the first time that a Swiss Red Cross Gala has been celebrated in the Engadine and on the frozen lake of St. Moritz. The Red Cross Gala Board is deeply moved and impressed by the work being done by the SRC in all regions of the world. The proceeds from the Swiss Red Cross Gala 2016 in St Moritz will go towards helping the victims of forgotten disasters and the water program in Nepal. The earthquake that hit Nepal in late April 2015 caused unimaginable suffering.

We would be very grateful if you would support us by giving generously. Yours faithfully The Swiss Red Cross Gala Board


37 MESSAGE FROM THE CEO OF MEDICA

DR. FRANZ KÄPPELI

In 1956, medica was established by Dr. Lambelet as a laboratory. From 1972 onward, it constantly expanded in line with medical progress under the auspices of Dr. Käppeli. The laboratory has been operated under the name “medica” since 1976 and was recognized by the Swiss national authorities that same year under Dr. Käppeli. medica provides a broad range of high-quality services in laboratory diagnostics and pathology, which are also available inter-regionally to referring parties, such as physicians in private practice, clinics and patients. Our work revolves around our patients and around the challenge of always being able to offer the best. As a teaching institution recognized by FAMH, it is a matter of course for us to support and co-organize advanced and continuing training for physicians and medical personnel. Our humanitarian commitment is part of our guiding principles. It is therefore only natural for us to cooperate with and support non-profit humanitarian institutions. Examples of our numerous and diverse projects are the Theodora Children's Charity, Kids of Africa, Special Olympics Switzerland, the Muri Competition for young musical talents and the Swiss Red Cross (SRC).

Our connections with the SRC are special, given our routine use of laboratory diagnostics and our emergency medical services. SRC is the best known and most multi-faceted humanitarian organization in Switzerland and we are proud to be allowed to support it in this major anniversary year. We enjoy looking back with you on a successful 150-year history and want to help you to continue making your motto “For more humanity” a reality. May all your various anniversary activities be highly successful and have the public relations effect you deserve. That is medica's wish for you.

NO6 “Did you look around?”, Oil on wood panel, 60 x 60 cm, 2014 Artist: Bob & Roberta Smith Bob & Roberta Smith is a single artist persona who has achieved a skyrocketing reputation in the UK art scene, especially acknowledged by the Royal Academy. With rotating exhibitions at the Tate Modern London and the PS1 in New York, Bob & Roberta Smith is one of the most puzzling contemporary artists worldwide. His art work is witty but still political: Bob & Roberta Smith (*1963) sees art as an important element in democratic life. Central to Bob and Roberta Smith’s thinking is the idea that political campaigns are extended art works that include a variety of consciousness raising artefacts. Much of his art takes the form of painted signs. These colourful slogans on banners and placards challenge elitisms and advocate the importance of creativity in politics and education. www.vonbartha.com Value: CHF 10,000

N O 10 INA DEDERER Adriana Lima - Angel, 2015 Oil on canvas 120x140 cm Ina Dederer, currently living in Zurich, is a painter with Russian and German roots whose works sell around the globe. The talented artist has developed her own painting style over many years; she technically reinterprets contemporary works and refines them with harmonious and soft-flowing posterized contours. The work, Adriana Lima - Angel, like many of the other pieces from the series Beauties, shows a woman who embodies the typical western ideal of feminine beauty. At first sight, the image is perceived as perfect. However, as soon as you get closer, you notice large areas of color and unusual shades used for the skin. The technique applied shows us that the perfection of these icons is created through distance. The beautiful women we are familiar with in film, television, advertising and fashion magazines are simply a distant, manipulated depiction of reality. The artist uses posterization, a technique for creating powerful contrasts by means of refinement, detachment and the emphasis of certain lines in the image. Value: CHF 40,000

N O 36 INA DEDERER Ice Princess, 2014 Oil on canvas 100x100 cm Ina Dederer is a Zurich-based painter with Russian and German roots whose paintings are sold around the world. Over the years, Ina has developed her unique painting style using inspiration from posterization, a technique for creating powerful contrasts by means of refinement, detachment and the emphasis of certain lines in the image. This talented painter reinterprets contemporary works and refines them with harmonious and soft-flowing contours. The work, Ice Princess, like many of the other pieces from the series Beauties, shows a woman embodying the typical western ideal of a feminine beauty, this time an image in white, and wintery cool color tones. Initially, the princess is perceived as perfect. However, when you look closer, large light areas and unusual shades used for the skin become visible. Through the applied artistic technique, we see that perfection of these icons is created through distance. The beautiful women we see today in film, television, advertising and fashion magazines are simply a remote and manipulated depiction of reality. Value: CHF 18,000

N O 47 Mainau 2, Schattenskulptur, H60 x B40, Kgst.Nr.113 Born in Munich in 1951, Stefan Szczesny is among the protagonists of the ‘Junge Wilde’ movement that emerged in the late 70s in reaction to minimal and other non-figurative art. The goal of this movement was to break free from the ‘less is more’ dictates of the time and to breathe new life into the subject matters of figurative art. In his unmistakable style – light, spirited and for-ever positive – Szczesny falls back on the traditions of classical modernity. He feels connected in particular to Picasso and Matisse. "The main duty of art is to convey a positive, humane vision of life," Szczesny says. The shadow sculptures depict women, plants, fishes and abstract forms. Szczesny's Shadow Sculptures embody a striking simplicity of line and material.They are life-affirming ambassadors of the south, sending sunny springtime greetings. "Enjoy life! Enjoy peace and sensuality!", they seem to say. Value: CHF 5,200
