Our purpose is to promote cultures of peace and justice.

During the year 2009 the Lahore CC Pakistan carried on several programs for youth, women, religious leaders, scholars and children, and also collaborated in organizing programs such as the Symphony of Peace Prayer in May and the International Day of Peace in September. Moreover, the members of this CC have been very active in providing relief to the internally displaced people of Swat Valley, Pakistan. We visited these refugees and gave them food, clothes and some cash. Fr. James Channan, the URI Pakistan Coordinator, was interviewed by a Spanish television network on the present situation of Pakistan and role of URI in promoting peace and harmony among people of different religions. Fr. Channan gave 6 interviews to Radio Vatican, including two on inter-religious dialogue in Pakistan. The activities of URI in Pakistan were mentioned and how URI is serving as agent of change in our society and doing its utmost best to bring healing and reconciliation in our region.

Our dream is interfaith harmony.
