TOGETHER for Humanity (TFH) has won the Community Peace Award from the Rotary Club of Australia, in recognition of the organisation’s work in challenging prejudice and promoting diversity.
“Together for Humanity is a wonderful organisation,” said Rotary Club of Sydney president Alex Shaw. “They set aside their religious beliefs for humanitarian beliefs and it just goes to show that people can work together for the common good.”
On behalf of TFH, Rabbi Zalman Kastel, Madenia Abdurahman and Ahmed Abdo accepted the award from the deputy chair of the Rotary Club peace committee Fatima Ali, who praised the organisation for its work towards “inclusivity, tolerance, acceptance and respect”.
Accepting the award, Rabbi Kastel said, “It is a great honour to be recognised by the Rotary Club, which has been working towards peace for almost a century. Together for Humanity does not just talk about peace and respect, we model it.”
