Ambassadors for Peace

Ambassador for Peace Initiatives in Peru

Lima, Peru - Ambassadors for Peace in Peru continue to promote peace whenever they have the opportunity, many of them taking the initiative to work or hold meetings themselves.

Peace Prize

Recently one Ambassador for Peace, Mr. Miguel Johnny Pacheco Ramos, who has worked for the past 17 years in local government, received an award from the Ministry for Women and Social Development in Peru. Each year they award a “Peace Prize” to carefully selected people who have shown initiative in their work for peace. This year Mr. Pacheco was recognized for his work with children and teenagers, educating them about family values.

Peace Festival

Also in the Miraflores district of Lima, Ambassador for Peace Mr. Carlos Espinosa organized a gathering in the amphitheater of the main park on Nov. 12 called the 5th Peace Festival, an annual event in which he brings together artists and speakers to provide entertainment and inspiration about peace. This year Mrs. Patricia Contador, wife of Congressman Yonhy Lescano, who recently started a campaign for the presidency of Peru, spoke about peace and the work of UPF Founder Rev. Sun Myung Moon. A period of meditation to music was also part of the program. Other Ambassadors for Peace also attended, and leaflets were distributed about the vision of UPF.

Palestinian celebration

UPF was also invited to attend a Palestinian celebration on Nov. 20. More than 500 people gathered in the Arab Club to share in this event. The ambassador of Palestine expressed gratitude for the participation of UPF.
