International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG) is calling for implementation of an international peace law that will end war currently happening in different areas throughout the world.

IWPG Chairwoman Hyun Sook Yoon said everyone should support the implementauon of the peace act.

Yoon was speaking during IWPG 4th International Branch Annual General Meeting online, where achievements of the past year and the upcoming plans of IWPG were discussed.

The meeting had participation of 102 branches from 131 countries. This event presented the role and direction of 3.8 billion women around the world

Former Minister of Women’s Affairs of Jordan Nadia Hashem Aloul, said, the year 2020 was a very hard and difficult year due to COVID-19 pandemic.

 “Despite COVID-19, IWPG hosted the SOS Campaign online and worked to prevent discrimination around the world. That peace is in the minds of all women who raise a generation of peace,” she said.

Member of Parliament of Ethiopia Yayesh Tesfahuney Kiflay whose country still records conflicts said they will never give up on calling for peace.

Ms. Baek Lee Jo, Daejeon Chungcheong Branch Manager in South Korea said they will work together to become an IWPG that dreams of taking a new leap forward by communicating with 3.8 billion female members around the world to realize peace.

“We first learned of the high school girl who has acute leukemia through a YouTuber who we signed an MOA with last year. Six branches in the Chungcheong area of Daejeon came together to deliver a total of 860 blood donation certificates received from their families and neighbors directly to the school,” he said.

Larzy Varghees a principal from St. Matthew’s High School and Junior College in Mumbai who completed the IWPG Peace Lecturer Training Education (PLTE) said she understood deeply that “through this education we need to have the good qualities of peace and need to share that with society.” She also noted that if all women in the world become one team and work together, then peace can be achieved.

This year, IWPG is planning to actively promote peace activities in response to the post-COVID19 era with the slogan of “Women Who Lead Peace” and three core values of “Coexistence, Recovery, and Communication.”
