Good Day

Hello everyone!

I am not brand new member , I have been browsing English forum since Apr 2011. It's been 5 months, just realized that i haven't introduced myself here. Better never than late. Here it goes..

My name is Shiffy, happily married home maker moved with my hubby. My hobbies are listening to music, cooking, love to learn new things and shopping. i am from South India.

I am enjoying nature, climate, hiking, quality of life etc. every bit of my stay in Switzerland.

I am proud to share a bit of information which had been a part of my school life. I was a member of Indian Junior Red Cross society in school days but I was not aware that Switzerland is the birth place of Red Cross which i came to know later.

The reversed Swiss flag is the symbol of the Red cross.

Fundamental principles of Red Cross are Humanity, Impartiality, Neutrality, Unity, Universality and voluntary service.

EF also works as a Red Cross on the super helpful information and suggestions for those are in trouble. I would like to thank founder, administrators and all the members on this Forum.

cheers
Shiffy

Thanks Shiffy.
And welcome to EF and Switzerland.
Glad you are having a great time.

And about EF being like the Red Cross...lets just say you have not been here long enough.

PS: Your picture still does not show. Maybe try attaching it.

I see a red cross. Just perhaps a different red cross than the one intended.

Re: Good Day

Hi Shiffy,

Welcome to the EF.


I just posted a PM to you to help suggest another way to post an image.
Hope that helped.


....... there are a few EF social event's that I'm sure may require the assistance of the Red Cross at some point in the evening.

Is it the "Reversed" Swiss Flag because the Red Cross actually helps people?
