Mary @ Refugee Council 2007 fundraiser launch

Today Crown Princess Mary has attended the launch of the Danish Refugee Council's annual national collection for 2007 scheduled for November 11, to support the humanitarian work of the DRC both abroad and within Denmark. The DRC works to provide emergency aid, rebuild schools, clear landmines and support community development in 20 countries. Within Denmark the DRC is involved in various refugee integration services with its large network of volunteers. The launch at the Glyptoteket Museum in Copenhagen, is to bring the date of the national collection into the public mind and emphasise the objectives for the collection funds to be raised: for food, medicine, shelter, de-mining, rebuilding schools and hospitals in areas of operation abroad and also for refugee services inside Denmark.
