Happy New Year and 2023 Programme

UPF International—All of us at UPF International would like to wish our friends and colleagues across the world a very Happy Holiday Season and New Year 2023. YourDr Thomas Walsh 450 encouragement, support and contributions to our mission and work are deeply appreciated. As a result, UPF is widely recognized as a leading voice for peace in the midst of a polarized and divided world.

As we are all aware, 2022 has had its share of challenges, challenges that take on many forms, from war and conflict to corruption and poverty, from threats to our environment, to threats to human dignity and human rights. Despite the difficulties we face, we press on, doing our best to make a difference in this world, promoting dialogue, mutual respect, and cooperation among people of all nationalities, religions, ethnicities, races and cultures. In this way, we build trust and solidarity, and make progress toward the goal of becoming one harmonious and universal human family under God.  More from Dr Thomas Walsh: Chairman, Universal Peace Federation International here
