"To foster peace, one friend at a time."

World Friendship Center was founded by Barbara Reynolds on August 7th, 1965
(20 years after the Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima)
to provide a place where people from many nations can meet,
share their experiences and reflect on peace.

World Friendship Center has continued Barbara's vision of serving the Hiroshima community
and visitors to the city in a variety of ways.

Time: 1:30-3:30PM

Enjoy a talk by Lindsey, our intern, on the Maasai people of East Africa.  For hundreds of years, the Maasai people have had a complex relationship with lions. However, with lion populations drastically dwindling, the Maasai have adapted from their roles as hunters to protectors of the African lions.

 

Our second hour will be a cooking demonstration of Yu Lin Chi (Chinese Fried Chicken with special sauce) and, of course, eating the finished product!

 

Please join us! Please tell us by June 22 if you plan to join us.
