Kim Phuc – A Journey of Peace

A World Focus Event:

A Journey to Peace

At the age of nine Kim Phuc became the iconic figure of how war so cruelly creates victims of innocent children and civilians. Known as the “girl in the picture”; the subject of a Pulitzer prize-winning Vietnam War photo snapped by Nick Ut in 1972 and credited by many as the photo that helped to end the war, the snap of the camera ultimately saved Kim’s life and has allowed her the unique opportunity to tell a story of enduring strength, forgiveness and helping others.
 
Now Kim is an advocate for peace, spreading the message that reconciliation, mutual understanding, dialogue, and negotiation need to replace confrontation and violence as a means of settling conflicts.
 
Presented by ADRA Canada, a member of the ADRA network located in 125 counties; providing community development and emergency relief in at risk communities, and sponsored by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA); A World Focus Event: A Journey to Peace features guest speaker Kim Phuc who will provide inspiration, motivation, and education on the need for all Canadians to be agents of peace.
