The White Helmets

The White Helmets will receive the

2016 International Peace Award

““We are very happy to receive this peace prize because it means that there are still people around the world who support our mission to protect lives, and that the voices for peace are much stronger than the voices for war.”

The Syria Civil Defence (White Helmets) are to receive the 2016 Tipperary International Peace Award on September the 6th at BallyKisteen Hotel, TIpperary

 

The award is “a testament to the enormous bravery and courage shown” by the White Helmets, the convention said in a statement.

 

 

The group’s stated mission is

 

“to save the greatest number of lives in the shortest possible time and to minimise further injury and damage to property”.

 

 

The White Helmets have saved more than 100,000 people, while 192 of the unarmed volunteers have lost their lives. Responding to news of the selection, a spokesperson for the group said: “We are very happy to receive this peace prize because it means that there are still people around the world who support our mission to protect lives, and that the voices for peace are much stronger than the voices for war.”
