WHAT WE DOAND MESSAGES OF SUPPORT

Children of Peace is a non-partisan children’s charity organization dedicated to building trust, friendship and reconciliation between Israeli and Palestinian children, aged 4 – 17, and their communities. Our aim is to develop a shared spirit via arts, education, health and sports programmes. So future generations might live and work peacefully side-by-side. We believe in working for peace. That’s why we don’t take sides.

(Mayor’s Office, February 2009)

“As Mayor of London, I deplore conflict and all acts of violence. I support a culture of global peace and understanding, including the restoration and promotion of peace in the Middle East. I would like to commend Children of Peace for their efforts in promoting peace and understanding between the children of Israel and Palestine.”

“As your organization has recognized, children are often overlooked victims of violent conflict, and too few efforts are focused on their particular needs. Generations of Israeli and Palestinian children have grown up with peace as an elusive dream. Supporting the Israeli-Palestinian peace process requires grassroots reconciliation through the mobilization of non-governmental organizations such as Children of Peace. I wish Children of Peace the best success in all of its endeavors as it continues to grow.”

“The Holy Father will remember your intentions in his prayers and he invokes upon you God’s blessings of joy and peace.”

“I am encouraged by Children of Peace in their commitment against anti-Semitism and Islamophobia. This organization is taking a step in the right direction by passing down inclusive values to the next generation.

I commend Children of Peace for their work in this area.”

“The UK’s longstanding position on the Middle East Peace Process is clear and has not changed: we support a negotiated settlement leading to a safe and secure Israel living alongside a viable and sovereign Palestinian state; based on 1967 borders with agreed land swaps, Jerusalem as the shared capital of both states, and a just, fair, agreed and realistic settlement for refugees.

The UK shares your commitment to helping build understanding between people on both sides of the conflict, including engaging in people-to-people work to bring together different communities. This includes promoting a more positive portrayal of one another to contribute to building the conditions needed for peace.”
