MAN HEE LEE, A MILESTONE OF HISTORY IN MINDANAO IN THE PHILIPPINES
A peace treaty is signed in Mindanao
On the island of Mindanao in the Philippines, the citizens of Zamboanga want peace more than ever before. In the south, the continuing conflict between government and Muslim insurgents has resulted in the displacement of approximately 80,000 residents, whilst the rising death toll is quickly approaching triple digits.
On January 24th, 2014 Mr. Lee Man Hee visited Mindanao and arranged a meeting between the leaders of the two major religious groups who have been embroiled in violent conflict for the past 40 years. He called the youth and other citizens and officials to attend the meeting as witnesses, and urged the leaders of the conflicting communities to publically sign a memorandum of understanding, declaring their devotion to bringing peace to the Island of Mindanao and all its citizens. Mr. Lee says that if leaders truly love their people, they will want to work toward a peaceful existence and lead by example.
