Outlook-hrfuxfjt.png

Religions for Peace is deeply saddened by the passing of two veterans of religious peacebuilding,  Hon. Ms. Mehrezeia Labidi-Maiza (Tunis and France) and Ms. Mary Khin Nyo Nyo (Myanmar). Inspired by their faith, they devoted their lives to serving peaceful coexistence and justice for all people. As we mourn the loss of their servant leadership, and their contributions to peace, we honour their memory and celebrate their lives. We send their families and colleagues our prayers for strength. 
Their passing calls us to remember the loss of each life due to Covid-19 and senseless violence. To honour their lives and their deaths, we commit to continuing to facilitate multi religious collaboration for the health, peace, and security for all.   

Prof. Azza Karam, PhD.

Secretary General
