Deborah Moldow, The World Peace Prayer Society Representative to the United Nations and Monica Willard, The World Peace Prayer Society Peace Representative are joint recipients of the 2009 Spirit of the United Nations award, presented by the NGO Committee on Spirituality, Values and Global Concerns (New York).
This award has been given in past years to one recipient annually, an ambassador or UN staff member who has helped to bring spirituality and values to the work of the United Nations. This year, the Committee decided to present awards in three categories: Ambassador, UN staff, and Non-Governmental Organization (NGO).
The Award Ceremony was held on October 26th at the Church Center for the United Nations in New York City.
