Be kind to one another: a call for contributions

The Humane First Movement (HFM), which is a peace movement in Bangladesh, has launched a new campaign in the light of the COVID19 crisis called: “Be Kind to One Another”. The campaign started on the 21st of June and will run until the 20th of September. Through this campaign, the movement aims to highlight the importance of solidarity and of being kind towards one another. The Bangladesh Workgroup at the Hague Peace Projects has joined this campaign as joint advocates of social cohesion and solidarity.

We are therefore announcing a call for contributions, to spread messages of kindness and solidarity beyond geographical boundaries.

The ongoing pandemic has shown us the importance of being kind to one another, and has highlighted our interconnectedness across divides. Do you have a message to share? Do you want to express solidarity with this campaign?

Here is your chance to participate:

  1. Write a message on a piece of paper about the importance of being kind, and add the hashtags: #bekindtooneanother, #behumanefirst #haguepeaceprojects. Take a photograph of this and send it to us! Please remember to mention/tag us, and also to share it on your own social media accounts.
  2. You are also welcome to share short anecdotes- your own motivational stories of solidarity during the pandemic. Please send to: info@thehaguepeace.org. In the subject, please mention “Submission: #bekindtooneanother.”
  3. Language: English primarily. If not, please include a translation along with your message of solidarity.

Note: HFM signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with HPP in 2019, agreeing to collaborate as advocates of social cohesion.
