Aug 08 2017 United Nations
We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which Lise Grande is associated, including Mosul, United Nations, and family. Most recently, Lise Grande has been quoted saying: “It's a relief to know that the military campaign in Mosul is ending. The fighting may be over, but the humanitarian crisis is not. Many of the people who have fled have lost everything. They need shelter, food, health care, water, sanitation and emergency kits. The levels of trauma we are seeing are some of the highest anywhere. What people have experienced is nearly unimaginable.” in the article Iraqi prime minister arrives in Mosul to announce 'the end and the failure and the collapse' of Islamic State in the city.
