Not A Garden of Weeds

This post is an extract of the speech delivered during OIC Conference on Food Security and Agricultural Development in Tehran, Iran on 14th January 1995.

WIPER

As a result of persevering efforts in pursuing the subject of poverty, the AARRO had appointed Malaysia to form a model institute for poverty eradication named World Institute for Poverty Eradication, with the acronym WIPER.

WIPER is to wipe out poverty.

While the Red Cross, and later the Red Crescent, is of Swiss origin and was instituted to assist the needy in times of war and disaster, WIPER intends to help the needy in times of peace.
