Congratulations on the 5th anniversary of Aurora Humanitarian Initiative! I hereby extend my warmest greetings and best wishes to the founding members and the staff of the initiative.
Aurora is quite a young initiative, yet I am confident that it has a long and fruitful way to go ahead. Today we can state that it has gone a long way towards spreading humanitarian values and strengthening peace across the globe. Aurora contributes to mankind’s progress and promotes the principles of justice, peace and solidarity.
The initiative’s geographical coverage and the spheres of activity are expanding every year. Aurora is well known and highly reputed in the world; it has a secured a niche of its own in the family of international organizations.
Aurora helps enhance the international standing of Armenia and the Armenian people. It has undoubtedly become a unique visiting-card for our people. Aurora founders Vardan Gregoryan, Nubar Afeyan and Ruben Vardanyan did a great job. By glorifying humanity, encouraging their unwavering commitment to serving peace and progress, they materialized the noble idea of immortalizing the memory of the innocent victims of the Armenian Genocide.
Unfortunately, conflicts and wars are commonplace in modern world. The Aurora Prize is a valuable tool for preventing human tragedy and promoting peace.
Aurora supports and honors those individuals who defy numerous threats and challenges in their efforts aimed at protecting human life, health, dignity and rights, and fostering peace in the world.
Reiterating my congratulations, I express my admiration and gratitude to all those who work to bring this initiative to life.
I wish you all every success and new achievements!
