[HWPL] Malawi Supports HWPL's DPCW at the National Level



[HWPL] Malawi Supports HWPL's DPCW at the National Level

Chairman ManHee Lee is the head representative of the global peace organization HWPL (Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light), which is striving for the enactment and implementation of the international peace law 'Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW)'. The  DPCW is a legal instrument comprised of 10 articles and 38 clauses that can end wars and hostilities throughout the world. HWPL is also spreading a culture of peace and implementing peace education.

Chairman ManHee Lee experienced the cruelty and tragedy of war as a veteran of the Korean War. This is one of the reasons why he founded a global peace campaign as the head of HWPL. He has traveled the globe more than 35 times to meet and persuade politicians, legal experts, journalists, professors, peace activists, civil organization leaders, heads of tribes and others to unite them for the work of peace. The significant fruits borne out of his hard work are the World Alliance of Religions' Peace (WARP) Summit and HWPL Peace Committee. The DPCW was drafted and finalised by the HWPL Peace Committee.

How, you may wonder, do I know this? About 10 years ago, when I had just been discharged from military service, I came to know HWPL and Chairman ManHee Lee while researching the topic of civil conflicts to satisfy my curiosity in ongoing global issues. At that time, the island of Mindanao in the Philippines was suffering from a major civil conflict that lasted more than 40 years, and Chairman ManHee Lee and HWPL resolved this conflict through non-violent means.

Chairman Lee brought an end to the conflict in Mindanao by holding a peace talk between the warring Catholic and Islamic groups. Before the talk, HWPL and Chairman ManHee Lee held a Peace Walk to spread the culture of peace in Mindanao with the many locals who had gathered out of a desire for peace.

Chairman ManHee Lee's pressing appeal today is that humanity unites for sustainable peace in order to pass on the legacy of peace to future generations worldwide. He doesn't just talk peace, but has worked tirelessly for it through practical peace campaigns for over a decade.

I decided to become a supporter of HWPL and Chairman ManHee Lee's peace initiatives because I also desire a world of peace for all posterity.

Today I'd like to introduce an article from HWPL official homepage regarding HWPL's DPCW in Malawi :)

Members of Parliament (MPs) in Malawi Discuss to support the DPCW at the national level

On November 22, Members of Parliament in Malawi gathered once again at the Malawi National Assembly after the 9th Anniversary of the September 18th HWPL Peace Summit held in South Korea. The purpose was to establish sustainable peace based on the principles of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW).

Malawi is a relatively peaceful country, having remained uninvolved in active conflicts since gaining its independence. Nevertheless, the nation faces socio-economic issues that require attention, such as Gender-based Violence (GBV). The event was attended by 10 members of the National Assembly, including Honorable Axson Carlyle Banda, representative of the Speaker of the Malawi National Assembly, and Honorable Ebrahim Abel Kazembe. During the gathering, they deliberated on strategies to make Malawi a more peaceful and joyous nation, drawing inspiration from the 10 Articles and 38 Clauses of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW). The objective was to promote universal values within the international community and achieve sustainable peace.

The event commenced with introductions and a welcoming speech delivered by Honorable Ephraim Abel Kayembe. This was followed by an introduction to HWPL peace projects and the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW). Subsequently, active discussions were held to work towards establishing sustainable peace in Malawi through the principles outlined in the DPCW.

Honourable Emmanuel Chambulanyina Jere, a Member of Parliament, expressed, “I believe it would be beneficial for the government’s national peace policy project in Malawi to collaborate with HWPL’s peace project. It is also advisable to arrange a meeting to discuss this proposal with the Malawi Peace Project Committee.”

During the closing remarks, representing the Speaker’s Office, Honorable Ackson Banda stated: “We express our gratitude to your organization for coming to Malawi to engage Honorable members on matters concerning peace, women, and children. As Members of Parliament, we eagerly anticipate collaborating with you to lend support to the initiatives led by your organization. I am pleased that we had this specific engagement, and we have gained insights from the presentations. We will duly consider and implement the valuable information, as previously emphasized.”

Honorable Members who attended the event proposed the establishment of a high-level working group for peace projects, aligning with HWPL’s peace initiative in Malawi, as a viable solution to address the numerous challenges at the national level. Additionally, six Members of Parliament expressed their support for the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) by signing a letter.

At the 9th Anniversary of the September 18th HWPL Peace Summit, nine African countries, including Malawi, endorsed a Joint Statement committing to collaborative efforts for peace activities in the African region. This commitment was made during the session meeting titled “Strengthening Personal Networking for Institutionalization of Peace and Promotion of Peace Project for Southern African Region.” Subsequently, the Malawi Ministry of Education and the HWPL Department of Peace Education have sustained peace initiatives through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with HWPL.
