HWPL, "Let's work together on peace" in all walks of life in Africa

HWPL, "Let's work together on peace" in all walks of life in Africa




The Heavenly Culture, World Peace and Restoration of Light (HWPL) has visited South Africa three times (3rd, 17th, and 29th) so far as a peace tour. This is because this place is full of the aspiration for peace that was planted by Nelson Mandela, the Nobel Peace Prize laureate and the first black president in South Africa's history, and is giving great support to Man Hee Lee and his peace delegation. 


In particular, during the 29th peace tour, there were great achievements, such as meeting with all walks of life in Africa to introduce the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) and signing an MOU with many schools for peace education presented by HWPL. 




HWPL signed an MOU with PAP on August 9, 2018 at the President's Office of the Pan African Parliament (PAP) in Johannesburg, South Africa. The PAP also delivered an official letter to support DPCW, 10 Articles 38 clauses. After that, HWPL met with the social leaders, religious classes, youth, and women of Africa to appeal to their country's president to join in supporting the DPCW. 


The peace delegation attended the 'African Peace Leaders' Meeting: High-Level Meeting' held at the Hilton Hotel the next day. The meeting was a place for former and current African presidents, ministers, and national leaders to gather and discuss peace and security in Africa. 


Chairman Man Hee Lee, of HWPL, said, “I came to Africa to talk about the need for DPCW 10 articles, 38 clauses. President cannot resist peace. So, I am asking you to work on peace together.” 




At this meeting, two countries, 'Eswatini' and 'Seychelles', announced that they would support DPCW 10 Articles, 38 clauses at the national level. It is evaluated that it is very unusual for a foreign country's government to adopt and publicize a peace declaration enacted by a private organization as a national declaration. A national declaration is an official document signed by the incumbent president, and the signature of the incumbent head of state can increase the likelihood of introducing related policies. As the two African countries adopted the DPCW as a national declaration, it was evaluated that they actualize world peace that no other international organization or country could achieve. 


Three days later, on the 13th, the peace delegation participated in the 'African Peace Leaders Conference: Peace Value Education Session' following the 'African Peace Leaders Conference: Session of urging DPCW' held at the Westin Hotel. Chairman Lee said, “I hope that our teachers take charge of peace education so that peace can become an eternal legacy.” 


On this day, 11 South African schools, including Arcadia Elementary School, signed an MOU for peace education with HWPL. Holy Cross Girls' High School appointed chairman Lee as honorary principal and sought advice on peace education. 




In the 'African Peace Leaders Conference: alliance of religious' peace office Session', chairman Lee emphasized that religions should become one based on reliable scriptures. Chairman Lee said, “Heaven proves and the earth sees that we have certainly done the work of peace for the human world. Dear, religious leaders who gathered here today, be sure to check scripture comparison. I hope you'll be the ones who grace everyone and lead them on the right path."


In addition, Chairman Lee attended the 'African Peace Leaders Meeting: Women's Session' held at the International Convention Center on the 14th which was his last schedule in South Africa. On this day, the first ladies and about 70 influential women leaders from each region gathered to discuss ways to realize peace. 


Chairman Lee said, “Now that there is an answer to achieve peace, it is fun, work-worthy, hopeful, and very good. This being so, we have to become one with International Women's Peace Group. Let's achieve world peace together."


The participants established the Women's Peace Committee on this day, signed the International Women's Peace Pledge, and stood at the starting point of a special mission to achieve peace.

[HWPL] Lee Man-hee, HWPL's representative documentary who led the "Mindanao Peace," is also a "huge success" in Seoul

Lee Man-hee, HWPL's representative documentary
who led the "Mindanao Peace," is also a "huge success" in Seoul





A documentary preview which Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Cessation of War(Corp.) (HWPL), world peace NGO under UN Economic and Social Council and Man Hee Lee, chairman of HWPL, led 'cessation of war' in Mindanao, Philippines was held in Korea following the Philippines.


The peace documentary 'Great Legacy in the Philippines' has been screened simultaneously at 64 locations nationwide, including Lotte Cinema, Megabox, and CGV, since the 23rd of last month. 


On the evening of the 6th, at CGV in Myeong-dong, in the middle of Seoul, 200 people including civil society groups, academia, media, and religious community attended and vividly delivered the amazing process of establishing peace in the worst conflict zone to the audience. 


In particular, the scene of making the HWPL Peace Monument by melting weapons used in the civil war and the scene of local people in the Philippines praying for peace in the divided Korean Peninsula also caused a lot of applause from the audience. Earlier, when it was released consecutively in Mindanao and Manila in the Philippines, it received a warm response from local government officials, representatives of 11 tribes in conflict zones, and citizens. 


'Great Legacy in the philippines' is a documentary about the beliefs and activities of a Korean peace activist who planted the seeds of peace in Mindanao, the Philippines, a land of 50 years of conflict, and the people who achieved peace with him and made come true. Mindanao has been a bloody site of murder for over 50 years as an armed conflict between the Philippine government and the Mindanao militants that began with the 'Moroin massacre' in the 1960s escalated into a confrontation between Islam and Catholic religion. As a result, more than 120,000 casualties and more than 3.5 million refugees occurred. It was simply a 'global long-term conflict zone'





'The Great Legacy in the Philippines', which was screened on this day, showed the mediation process of cessation of conflict of HWPL and chairman Man Hee Lee, started in 2014 Mindanao, Philippines which was an intense conflict area. Among them, the HWPL private agreement ceremony held in General Santos City, Mindanao, Philippines on January 24, 2014 was highlighted. At that time, Representative Man Hee Lee moved to the Philippines and gathered representatives of both Islamic and Catholic, which were the central axis of the conflict in Mindanao, and made them hold hands and declared that they would end the conflict and establish peace. 


In addition, the Philippine authorities and leaders expressed their gratitude that the peace in Mindanao, which had been sluggish despite decades of negotiations, was achieved through HWPL's sincere efforts. It is evaluated that the overall process was clearly depicted in 60 minutes explaining the history of religious and ethnic conflicts in Mindanao, the HWPL's peaceful move in the midst of a battle, and realization of the present peace with this opportunity. 


A HWPL official said, “I am grateful for being able to show the process of cessation of conflict which lasted 50 years in Mindanao and the work of peace achieved by HWPL to domestic members and those who cooperated and to the domestic audience following local citizens. We ask for your continued interest and support as you can find out through the documentary that the efforts of the private sector are the root of peace growing independently and settling down.”

[HWPL] The peace documentary "Great Legacy" is receiving favorable reviews... "Manhee Lee, the angel of peace. If he moves, stay in peace"

The peace documentary "Great Legacy" is receiving favorable reviews...
"Manhee Lee, the angel of peace. If he moves, stay in peace"




“I think the peace documentary 'Great Legacy' is a documentary that shows very well from an empirical point of view that peace can reside when the messenger of peace moves and the spiritual leader moves even during war.” 


Professor Jang Soon-hwi of Catholic Kwandong University, who attended the premiere of 'Great Legacy in the Philippines' held at CGV in Myeong-dong, one of Seoul's representative downtown areas on the 6th, said about his impressions of watching the documentary.


'Great Legacy in the philippines' is a documentary about Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (Corp.) (HWPL), an international peace NGO under the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations and chairman Man Hee Lee drawing 'cessation of War' in Mindanao, Philippines.


'The Great Legacy in the Philippines', which was screened in Mindanao, Philippines and Manila early last month, received a great response from the locals. In Korea, it is being screened simultaneously at 64 locations nationwide, including Lotte Cinema, Megabox, and CGV. 


Preview of 'The Great Legacy in the Philippines' held at CGV in Myeong-dong on this day was a great success since more than 200 people, including civil society organization, academia, media, and religious community, attended the event. The participants left comments that they were moved by the achievements of peace achieved in Mindanao, Philippines by Man Hee Lee, a Korean civilian peace activist, chairman of HWPL. 


Mindanao is the site of a bloody conflict between Catholics and Muslims for over 50 years, having 120,000 victims killed. On January 24, 2014, when the bloody conflict continued, chairman Lee visited this place to mediate so that the two religions could end the conflict and achieve a 'peace treaty'. Chairman Lee led what the Philippine government could not do. 


Jang Soon Hwi, a professor at Catholic Kwandong University, said, “Even though it is a place with extreme risks such as war and terrorism, not everyone can go there at the risk of death. I was very moved by this.. Chairman Man Hee Lee is a courageous and true spiritual leader.” 


He continued, “I felt that what chairman Lee accomplished was really the right thing to do, and I really sympathized with the content of the documentary. It was a satisfying time.” 




Professor Jang also said, “Through ‘HWPL Peace Education’ (introduced in the documentary), I came to think that peace can also be educated. Watching that peace education makes peace in the Philippines and many people participate in this education, I learned how the Philippines was able to get out of the miserable environment of the war. The documentary helped expand my knowledge.” 


Political figures also said, "The peace agreement is a wonderful thing," expecting such a thing to happen in Korea. 


Lee Jun Yong, standing representative of the Korea right politics coalition for the Future, said, “Chairman Lee as a civilian did this that even government could not solve. Achievement accomplished by chairman Lee is truly a great legacy. Peace agreement of Mindanao is a wonderful thing. It was impressive." 


He said, “If we look at the reality of Korean politics, there are lots of wrong things happened regardless of the opposition party. I wish that the pad practices of vested interests in Korea are corrected. I hope that things like this peace treaty that chairman Lee accomplished in Mindanao will be achieved so that everyone will be happy and there will be no unfairness in the world.” 


Religious officials said they were surprised by Lee's actions, who showed peace through actions, not just words. 

He said he was surprised by Lee's actions that showed peace achieved by actions, not just words.


Buddhist Hyewon said, “Many people cry for peace only with words, but chairman Lee showed it with actions. The amazing ability of chairman Lee to make peace possible for Catholic and Islamic representatives when signing the peace agreement really stood out.” 


He added, “I feel that chairman Lee is a very outstanding leader. I was amazed at the achievement of peace with action and determination. It is an infinite honor to be involved in the work of peace by HWPL.” 


A citizen who has a lot of interest in the Philippines said that he was truly sympathetic and moved by the cheers of the people in the Philippines. 


Son Joo Hyeon (Seongnam, Gyeonggi-do), who has been to the Philippines for overseas volunteer work, said, “I felt the sincerity toward the peace activities when I saw the cheers of the people in the Philippines. Especially, the scene where people changed from religious conflict to harmony was really touching."

[The 8th Peace Summit] Who is chairman Man Hee Lee?

[The 8th Peace Summit] Who is chairman Man Hee Lee?




Chairman Man Hee Lee of Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (Corp.)(HWPL) established HWPL in May 2013 and began a full-fledged peace movement to end wars and conflicts around the world and to achieve practical peace beyond national borders, religions and races.


Despite the 82-year-old age at the time in 2012, through a total of 31 miraculous tours around the world over the eight years from 2012 to 2019, he met political and religious leaders, including former and incumbent presidents of 52 countries, and showed practical results in signing a 'peace agreement'. Several foreign countries, including Turkey and Spain, recognized chairman Lee as an international peace activist and awarded letters of appreciation and plaques of merit.


Compared to many peace organizations around the world, chairman Lee's peace movement is differentiated by 'sincerity'. A representative example of its authenticity is the end of the 40-year conflict in Mindanao, the Philippines, which was considered the largest bloody conflict in Asia due to the conflict between Catholics and Muslims in 2014 and led to the signing of a peace agreement. By realizing the end of the bloody conflict in Mindanao in the private sector, chairman Lee emerged as a world-class peace activist.


HWPL is currently registered with the United Nations Global Communications Commission (DGC) and the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), and its status is recognized as a global peace organization.
