Mariam Al Hammadi, Director of The Big Heart Foundation, said: “On 21st September, the International Day of Peace is observed to strengthen the ideals of peace among all nations and people. The goal is to promote love and peaceful coexistence in the world. It is a global call for the prevention of wars and disputes.”

She added: “During armed conflicts, which many parts of the world is currently facing, increasing numbers of civilians have been displaced and separated from their families. There was an urgent need for redoubling international efforts to alleviate this human suffering.”

Al Hammadi added: “The Big Heart Foundation was established under the directions of Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher bint Mohammad Al Qasimi, Wife of His Highness, the Ruler of Sharjah, Chairperson of TBHF, and UNHCR Eminent Advocate for Refugee Children. The organization is dedicated to helping refugees, needy and vulnerable people in conflict zones worldwide, providing them with the basic needs to ensure they live a dignified life. We want them to be able to revive the concept of peace again after being displaced from their homes and suffering from war”.

Al Hammadi concluded:” Today, there is an urgent need for working together to strengthen the noble goals of the International Day of Peace. We need more cooperation to achieve peaceful coexistence among peoples. We have first to renounce discrimination based on race, sex, language or religion. Only then can we dream of a peaceful world free from conflicts”.
