Mr. Jee had the opportunity to introduce the peace achievements of HWPL to over 100 students, as a witness to the peace initiatives of HWPL chairman, Mr. Man Hee Lee.
As Mr. Jee appealed to the youthful audience, he reminded them of Mr. Man Hee Lee request that today, youth just become the peace advocates in this generation.
The WARP Offices, founded by Chairman Lee, an international peace advocate, has now expanded its outreach with over 60 offices across 39 countries including the U.S., UK, Australia, India, Philippines and South Africa.
A gathering of religious leaders representing the Christian, Judaic and Islamic faiths was also convened to discuss the correlation between religion and peace.
