[IPYG] Soccer Match for Peace in Melbourne, IPYG & UMMA


[IPYG] Soccer Match for Peace in Melbourne, IPYG & UMMA

Members of IPYG and UMMA
July 13th, IPYG (International Peace Youth Group) and UMMA (United Muslim Migrants Association) hosted a friendly soccer game at UMMA sports hall center in Doncaster, Melbourne, Australia.

IPYG and UMMA have been working together for WARP (World Alliance of Religions' Peace) Office's interfaith dialogue for understanding and conflict resolution between religions, which forms part of the "Legislate Peace" project of HWPL (Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light). Imam Muddasser Dhedy of the UMMA center participated in the interfaith dialogue two hours before the soccer game as a Muslim representative on the panel.

The Peace Soccer event was initiated by IPYG to raise awareness of peace for young adults in Melbourne so they can work together to build peace for the future.

IPYG and UMMA members took some time to learn about Islam's doctrines and the value of the Muslim faith. The Imam and UMMA youth representatives thanked IPYG members for visiting the UMMA center to listen to the teachings of Islam and for taking the time to promote harmony and peace in their community.

They played in a mixed team of 8-10 from UMMA and IPYG for 90 minutes. After playing soccer and learning Islam's teachings, hungry IPYG and UMMA members ate pizza together with laughter and chit-chat.

IPYG hopes all organizations, communities and religions will work together with them for world peace.
