Peace by Deeds and not Words

Latest News - Peace is the only way

Our hearts are in Paris today, but also in Beirut, where two suicide bombers blew themselves up in Bourj el-Barajneh two days ago; and in all the places around our planet where people lose their lives as result of violence, with inadequate or no worldwide media coverage.


As SCI activists and volunteers we are determined to continue working towards peace, reinforcing intercultural dialogue and always taking a peaceful approach. We reaffirm the importance of SCI’s mission and we will continue to work for a world of peace, being aware that we face new challenges. We want to unite our voices and raise a clear message to be heard in every corner of the world: peace is the only way.

Welcome, Anita!

Anita is visiting us from Italy. She is a member of SCI Italy and she will stay in Hong Kong for three months.


Welcome to Hong Kong, Anita and happy to have you here!

During the festival, volunteers also assisted with recycling and keeping the area clean, as well as explaining the recycling procedures to visitors.
