A MESSAGE FROM KENYA
“I was born in Cambodia. I lost many of my friends and family members and witnessed so much violence during the Vietnam War. As a survivor of such atrocities, I am able to share my stories and my fortunate opportunity to help others.
I have dedicated my life and career to help and save as many loves as possible – and do more to create a better world for all of us to live in.”
Growing up witnessing such violence and astrocities, Prach has witnessed children and women being abused. His life goal is to stop all crimes against humanity, and to create a better world for us to live in. That is why he has been dedicating his time and resources to stop human trafficking – especially for those of women and children.
His humaniterian efforts have been recognized and supported by the governments both in the United States and his native Cambodia.
MARCHING FOR PEACE
“I escaped from a fighting field – a second holocaust they call it – to a better life by coming to the United States. Yet today, I still see the history being repeated – there’s still so much violence in the world. That’s why we should come together on this one day, and walk in unity – and to remind ourselves to love and respect others.
If i can bring everyone together – family and friends to unite and share happiness – that makes me happy. I want everyone to join and march, because on this one day, we get to all walk the same path – to do good for the world and do as much as we can to give. I did my part – to create a better world for us to live in, can you do yours?”
– Kenya Prach
The peace march will be held in the city of San Francisco, CA, where you’ll be joined by hundreds of kindred souls. All we ask is to walk in quiet, peace and in unity in respect of our neighbours.
