Peace Train Chugger
Yusuf is sending a special Peace Train Chugger to mark The Christchurch Invitation, Mahia te Aroha, inŌtautahi Christchurch, NZ. The Mahia te Aroha is an initiative developed by members of the Christchurch Muslim community in the pursuit of peace. The project was born out of the extraordinary response of support, compassion and humanity that followed the terror in the city on March 15th 2019.
“Ōtautahi Christchurch is a city of peace, a city committed to honouring human rights …we will not be defined by what happened on 15 March 2019, we will be defined by what followed.”
Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel
The Peace Train Chugger is a customised mini-train that children and adults can ride enjoying songs and messages as they travel on the virtual tracks of peace. The train will arrive later this year in New Zealand and together Christchurch Invitation, Seed The Change NZ and Christchurch City Council will be ensuring the train has a place in the city as a symbol of peace building, compassion and understanding between communities.
