First Lady Debbie Remengesau focused attention on the role of women and how women play an integral role in our efforts towards a peaceful world during the 2019 World Summit hosted by the Universal Peace Federation (UPF) in Seoul, South Korea.

Speaking to delegates from more than 100 countries and organizations from around the world, First Lady Remengesau called on participants of the World Summit to work hand in hand to achieve our common goals, stating “Together we are strong. And I encourage you to be inspired by the women of Palau, who unite in times of crisis to take a stand for what’s right, lead their community and come up with new ideas and solutions to the problems we face.” Further adding, “We owe it to our children, and our children’s children, to take the lead when it comes to giving them a healthy, peaceful and secure world to inherit.”

Under the theme of “Peace, Security, and Human Development”, UPF and Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon brought together countless national and community leaders from around the globe, including former President of Kiribati Anote Tong and Tui Atua Tupua Tamasese, Samoa’s former Head of State, to discuss ways in which nations, communities and religious groups can work together.

First Lady Remengesau was accompanied by Losii Singeo, Emmy Ymesei, and Elaine Andreas who will be working with her to develop and implement a character education building program that is community based to help the children of Palau gain much needed skills to face the unique challenges of today’s world. Although the program is still under development, the First Lady is commitment to begin implementation. (PR)
