I got my hand to some more Information of the Jumbara asean, which is the South East Asian Youth Red Cross meeting, that we will be attending from today in Batam a island off Singapore in Indonesia.
See also my last blogpost. I’m a little embarrased, but we will come there virtually empty handed, since neither we nor the delegation has any material in form of pins, flyers or any other stuff we will be able to share there.
