In a world torn by war, violence and strife, it is wonderful that groups
like this exist and deserve our full support, encouragement and respect.


Dear Jim,

With Peace Day just over two weeks away, we want to give you an idea of
the extraordinary scale of this year’s celebration, which is set to be the
biggest by far in terms of commitment to the day. What will you do for peace
on Sunday, 21 September?

Thousands of organizations and individuals are planning Peace Day

As part of our campaign in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the
Great Lakes region of Africa (GLR), we are excited to announce that a
series of large-scale activities will be carried out by a number of UN agencies
and major NGOs on Peace Day 2014, including:

    * UNICEF/ DRC Ministry of Health will conduct mass Polio
vaccinations in support of Peace Day. Vaccinations will begin from 19-21 September
    * UNHCR/ UNFPA will be involved in the distribution of 1000
fuel-efficient stoves and briquettes
    * International NGO Search for Common Ground will organise sports
games, mobile cinema, and reconciliation committees
    * Big concerts in Kigali and Bujumbura, both facilitated by UN
    * UNHCR in the ‪DRC will support the voluntary repatriation of DRC
refugees from Uganda
Stay tuned for the announcement of more humanitarian and large-scale
activities in the next couple of weeks.

Our global campaign is building such momentum that it’s hard not to be
excited. The number of organisations and individuals signing up to be a part
of the action on 21 September surpasses anything we’ve seen before. Why not
join them and make this Peace Day your day, too?

We want to tell your story and inspire others to tell theirs! Please join
millions of others in a collective effort to celebrate Peace Day. Even
