On September 21, Mercy Corps and Partners In Health teamed up to celebrate International Peace Day in Mirebalais, Haiti.

While world leaders were meeting at the annual UN General Assembly in New York, hundreds of young boys and girls from our Moving Forward program were coming together and celebrating their differences, similarities, talents, and aspirations. Youth played friendly soccer matches, participated in team-building games, danced, and contributed to a narrative of peace and inclusion.

This short video gives a glimpse into that day and the light that these young people carry, which we must continue to strengthen, unite, and elevate.
