The Universal Peace Federation-USA was honored to collaborate with many of the African ambassadors’ wives who led UNAMA in organizing this event. Mrs. Ban Soon-taek, wife of U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, addressed the guests with words of encouragement. The event ended in a joyful spirit as the winners of the evening’s thirty of more raffles were announced.
