I consider it an honour and a privelege to be a Patron of the Denmark-Mijwan Friendship Association. This is a unique attempt to connect global citizens who live in strikingly different milieus. Mijwan is a tiny village in Azamgarh UP and its inhabitants will benefit greatly by their exposure to Denmark. On the other hand it is also an opportunity for Denmark to learn about people who live in disparate conditions and yet manage to retain their dignity and selfhood.
I congratulate Bente Haulund Madsen for her initiative because it is in connecting people that we find the road to Peace.
