In commemoration of the International Peace Day 2021, this piece of work is written, produced and published to inspire peace and social cohesion all over the world, from the the individual and family level to corporate, national and international levels. We hope to celebrate the selfless heroic actions of the incredible peace builders and frontline humanitarian workers who have pushed boundaries and risked their lives to keep us all safe.
In line with the theme for this year: ‘Recovering better for an equitable and sustainable world’; we celebrate and thank all the frontline healthcare workers who have worked tirelessly, risking their lives to keep us all healthy and safe during this #COVID19 pandemics.
For those who’ve lost loved ones owing to #COVID19 or the violent conflicts in Cameroon and other parts of the world; our thoughts and prayers go to your families. We pray for you and stand with you.
We hope that through this work, we can inspire and encourage someone to keep pursuing the right and just course regardless of the obstacles that they may face on the way. We all say #NoToHateSpeech and #NoToViolence
Lets us all support one another for the common good of humanity and the world
