Tripoli, North Lebanon. On 4 February, the Religion and Security Council (RSC) received the “Human Fraternity Award” from representatives of the Custody of the Holy Land during the celebration of the 3rd International Day of Human Fraternity proclaimed by the UN General Assembly, which took place at the El Safadi Cultural Center as the final event of the “Human Fraternity Initiative”.
RSC Chairman Emiliano Stornelli recalled that “the first Human Fraternity Day ever was celebrated precisely in Tripoli in 2019, and this may be a sign that interreligious dialogue in the city is on the right path”.
The “Human Fraternity Award” was conferred at the end of the “Human Fraternity Intiative” to organizations and practitioners for their engagement in the promotion of interreligious dialogue in Tripoli and North Lebanon.
Besides RSC, the awardees included Adyan Foundation, represented by President Nayla Tabbara and Executive Director Elie Al Hindy, Dialogue for Life & Reconciliation (DLR), represented by President Ziad Fahed, and Ms. Souraya Hammoud.
