NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 6, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — The world-renowned Mother Teresa Memorial Awards for Social Justice will spotlight Heidi Kuhn, Founder of Roots of Peace, during the celebration of the United Nations International Day of Charity at the United Nations’ Headquarters in New York which will be hosted by Thierry Cagianut, President of the Zariya Foundation. The award-winning film ‘Mother Teresa & Me’ by Kamal Musale, inspired by the life of Mother Teresa, will have its US Premiere at the event. The event is held in association with UNITAR, UNICEF, and UNESCO.

In a poignant tribute coinciding with Mother Teresa’s passing anniversary on September 5, 1997, Heidi Kuhn will be honored for her exceptional vision. In 1997, following the tragic deaths of Princess Diana and Mother Teresa, Kuhn embarked on a mission to transform ‘MINES TO VINES,’ replacing landmines with flourishing vineyards and orchards worldwide. Over the past 25 years, she has made a profound impact, facilitating the removal of hundreds of thousands of landmines and planting millions of fruit trees in war-torn lands, cultivating peace through agriculture. Her relentless humanitarian efforts are in harmony with Mother Teresa’s words, “What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.”

The Harmony Foundation, based in Mumbai, India, will officially announce the Mother Teresa Award Memorial Awards for Social Justice 2023. Dr. Abraham Mathai (Founder – Chairman, Harmony Foundation), remarked, “Given her tireless efforts in founding Roots of Peace, which has truly made a remarkable difference in communities ravaged by conflict and violence, Ms. Heidi Kuhn has managed to create sustainable economic opportunities in war-torn regions, empowering local farmers and enabling them to support their families and communities. In view of the same, the Harmony Foundation is greatly delighted to announce that Ms. Heidi Kuhn is one of our esteemed recipients of the prestigious award this year on the theme of Humanity in Action”. The award ceremony is scheduled to be held in the second week of November this year.
