[HWPL] HWPL's DPCW Event in Congo!



[HWPL] HWPL's DPCW Event in Congo!

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 regarding HWPL's International Religious Peace Academy :)

HWPL Held the 8th Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

On March 14, 2024, HWPL held the 8th Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) in Masina, Democratic Republic of the Congo. The ceremony began with congratulatory remarks by Alexandre Cilambu Mbuyi, assistant to the Deputy Minister of Transport of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It was broadcast live by major media outlets, including RTNC, the largest national broadcaster in the country.

Since proclaiming the DPCW in 2016, HWPL has held a commemorative ceremony every year to promote the institutionalization of peace. This 8th-anniversary ceremony held in the Democratic Republic of the Congo was an opportunity for HWPL, a peace organization, to introduce the DPCW to civil society organizations and gain support for peace work.

Seraphine Kilubu Kutuna, Deputy Minister of Transport in the Democratic Republic of Congo, provided a special venue for the ceremony and helped to host the event. The Congo Peace Group (CPG), an NGO headed by Deputy Minister Kutuna, is a large organization with approximately 100,000 members. It was a meaningful event that included executives and members of CPG organizations to create a cooperative relationship with HWPL in future peace activities.

In particular, while watching the video of ‘HWPL’s 8th Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War’ in Korea, civil society members who attended were moved and applauded HWPL’s peace activities since the DPCW was enacted. Next, they watched videos of HWPL’s peace activities in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Those in attendance expressed their gratitude to HWPL members who have sincerely worked to bring peace to the country..

During the ceremony, a congratulatory message from Deputy Transport Minister Seraphine Kilubu Kutuna was delivered on her behalf by her research assistant, Alexandre Cilambu Mbuyi. Having attended 2023 September 18th HWPL World Peace Summit, he introduced HWPL by saying, “I saw that HWPL is the only peace NGO in the world that works with practical answers to the cessation of war and achieving peace, not just words.” He also encouraged CPG group members to actively participate by becoming members of HWPL and taking the next step toward achieving peace.

The broadcast and media outlets of the Democratic Republic of the Congo quickly reported the news of HWPL’s peace activities to more people so that citizens can achieve global peace together. At the end of the event, all attendees decided to become messengers of peace by signing up as members of HWPL. Hopefully, more news of peace works and activities will be delivered from the Democratic Republic of the Congo in the future.
