Offer your support to Artists for Peace (APLP)

Since its foundation in 1983, the ARTISTS FOR PEACE initiative (Les Artistes pour la Paix – APLP), in Quebec, Canada, has been raising awareness among artists and citizens around the world about actions to help the blossoming of lasting peace through disarmament and social justice. Its mission is to promote the creation of non-political works of art for peace.

This initiative uses the arts as a promotional tool to protect life (including the environment, water, air, climate and diversity), culture and educational and public health institutions as well as human rights, fighting against sexism and racism in solidarity with minorities and indigenous people. Through manifestos, petitions, speeches and letters to elected officials, Artists for Peace fights against militarism and for disarmament. Several of its members have been to prison because of anti-nuclear activism.

To reach its goals, members produce artwork and organize exhibitions, shows and activities. The organization collaborates on conferences, meetings and assemblies that speak to its members or which pay tribute to representatives of the artistic community by showcasing their achievements.

SOPEVUDECO-DRC-CONGO

SOPEVUDECO2-EN

Social Development and Empowering the Most Vulnerable Elderly People Intervention Initiative.

SOPEVUDECO is an officially recognized organization in the Democratic Republic of Congo whose mission is to relieve the suffering of vulnerable groups or people in difficult situations and to promote a fair and equitable society, with a healthy environment where life is good.

The organization is active in the areas of poverty alleviation, human rights and peace promotion, food security, health, education, environment and sustainable development, among others.

Many elderly people in Kadutu live in difficult conditions due to lack of financial means, family support and state intervention. In many cases, these people have no home, no food or medical care. To help them, SOPEVUDECO ASBL has been looking after them since 2013.

The elderly are neglected and victims of many abuses related to their condition, both in their own families and in their communities. In Bukavu, the family situation of the elderly is alarming. They face many challenges including access to medical care, no activity for their empowerment and even, they lack housing.

The care of elderly people remains a headache in Bukavu: diseases, lack of housing and begging. Every Tuesday and Friday old people invade the arteries of the city of Bukavu to beg for money, food, clothing …; in commercial houses as in the streets to passers-by; many of them justify their situation for lack of assistance from their own families accusing them of several grievances until they are expelled from their homes. Grief, shock, violence, abuse and even accusations of witchcraft are all traumas experienced by seniors every day.

This initiative aims to promote the social development of the most vulnerable population of the elderly through food assistance, the provision of kitchen kits and the construction of their homes: an intervention that is important to relieve these neglected people and without assistance.

Third-age people live in loneliness and isolation. SOPEVUDECO makes every effort to socialize this category of people, educate and ensure the survival of orphans and vulnerable children of their families. In return, every effort should be made to support as much as possible SOPEVUDECO.

Offer your support! Each Like, Comment, Share is giving more visibility to this initiative and makes it better known as justice and peace builder.

2019 FINALISTS

ppp-site-2019-en

Campaign to promote and broadcast the finalists of the 2019 edition of the Public Peace Prize

The Public Peace Prize is at the stage of promotion and dissemination. The objective of this stage is to make visible internationally all the initiatives, candidates and candidates that have reached the status of finalist. To do this, we will publish a finalist profile every week on our website and on our Facebook page.

As in the previous edition, this year the support team of each finalist has the mission to support each application and not only that of its support team, so that it is known in all possible countries.

It is then about helping us advertise this candidacy on the own social networks. We remind people that this award is more collaborative than competitive. The aim is that all our finalists reach the final stage which is the declaration of the winners.

It is the set of reactions and actions such as dissemination, comments or congratulations which will determine whether the objectives of visibility have been achieved for a candidate.

The time to offer your support to the finalists of the 2019 Public Peace Award has arrived!

As a member of the support team, you can make a gesture of solidarity simply by your actions (like, comment and share) on the Facebook page of the Public Peace Prize. We thank you:
