The Gandhi Foundation International Peace Award for 2010
is awarded to
The Parents Circle Families Forum
The Gandhi Foundation Trustees felt that the Parents Circle Families Forum has been guided by one of the highest forms of Gandhian ideals, that of dialoguing with and understanding the adversary’s point of view and finding common ground on which to base a solution. The PCFF is also working to influence public and political opinion on aspects of reconciliation as a means to finally resolving the problems of security, historical lineage and common inheritance. The bereaved families on both sides of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict have united in their common grief, have had the courage to advocate that further violence is not a solution and are striving peacefully to prevent future bereavements.
The Gandhi Foundation Friends, Trustees and Patrons look forward to welcoming to London, representatives from the Parents Circle Families Forum in October 2010 to receive the award and hear about the outstanding work that they are carrying out. Further details will be available nearer the time.
