The United Nations General Assembly made a resolution that seeks a worldwide celebration of various faiths through the Interfaith Harmony Week which runs from February 1 to 7. Its goal is to promote harmony between citizens of the world regardless of their faith; a celebration of unity in diversity and divine connection between people and their faith.
The World Interfaith Harmony Week strengthens two religious commandments, “to Love God and to love the Neighbour,” without nevertheless compromising any of their own religious tenets. This mantra teaches everyone goodwill and the power of love, faith, kindness, charity, and healing. It includes those of other faiths and those with no faith.
It is hoped that this initiative will provide a focal point from which all people of goodwill can recognize that the common values they hold far outweigh the differences they have, and thus provide a strong dosage of peace and harmony to their communities.
Amidst rising religious conflicts across the globe, it is with hope that through patience and humility, we could make the world a magnificent place to live in where faith unifies and religion is not a means of oppression.
As Ssamba Foundation, we celebrate this week majorly because of the various volunteers that we have worked with, who have over the years put aside their faiths and beliefs and worked with us to achieve sustainable impact in the various communities we work in.
