Russia: Children are Angels of Peace
By WFWP/UPF Russia: On November 28, 2015 WFWP of Russia in cooperation with UPF held a big Intercultural Festival in our Peace Embassy in Moscow with the theme “Children are Angels of Peace” that was dedicated to Mother’s Day in Russia, to bring together Peace Ambassadors and children of many different nationalities with the purpose to cooperate more in peace making and charity projects.
Many Peace Ambassadors, representatives of different NGO’s, children’s ensembles of different nationalities took part in this event. We could see beautiful performances by Russian, Georgian, Ukrainian, Armenian and Azerbaijan children. Everybody was moved to tears by the performance of disabled children.
We could give Youth Peace Award to those special children and children’s ensembles who have been taking part in many peace making and charity projects for many years.
This was also a 7-year anniversary of the Russian SG ensemble “Angels of Peace”.
This event could unite the hearts of three generations of families and even three generations of Peace Ambassadors (adults, students and children).
One of the purposes of this event was also to promote family values and we were very happy to see performances of the winners of the Intercultural Family Contest “Family World” that is held by WFWP every year.
We are planning to hold such a festival every year because it is a very good way to bring people of good will together and to promote a real culture of heart and peace.
