by Madaline Dunn

The Zayed Award for Human Fraternity has shared its 2024 honorees, including Indonesian organisations Nahdlatul Ulama and Muhammadiyah; Egyptian world-renowned cardiac surgeon Sir Magdi Yacoub; and Chilean grassroots leader Sister Nelly Leon Correa.

These honorees were elected by an independent judging committee and highlighted for their efforts in tackling complex societal challenges and “promoting peaceful coexistence and solidarity among humanity at the international and grassroots levels.”

Nahdlatul Ulama and Muhammadiyah, are Indonesia’s largest Islamic organisations, with more than 190 million members, and have established educational institutions, hospitals, and poverty alleviation projects.

Meanwhile, world-renowned cardiac surgeon, Professor Sir Magdi Yacoub, is being honored for his efforts enabling life-saving medical care to those most in need, including vulnerable populations.

Sister Nelly Leon Correa, known as “Mother Nelly,” is the President and Co-Founder of Fundación Mujer Levántate (Woman Standing Up Foundation), an organisation that focuses on supporting incarcerated women, offering comprehensive support during their time in prison, and aiding their reintegration into society.

It was shared that nearly 94 per cent of program participants remain conviction-free within two years of release.

The recipients will be recognised during an award ceremony on February 5, 2024, at the Founder’s Memorial in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, which will be broadcast across local TV channels and on the Zayed Award for Human Fraternity YouTube channel: Zayed Award for Human Fraternity – YouTube.

Speaking about the Zayed Award for Human Fraternity, Secretary-General of Zayed Award for Human Fraternity Judge Mohamed Abdelsalam, said: “In the leadup to International Day of Human Fraternity, we have three honorees who truly exemplify the values of the Document. The Zayed Award for Human Fraternity judging committee is privileged to announce this year’s honorees who have championed values of human fraternity, acting as beacons of hope within their communities. Each of the honorees have upheld the noble vision for a more peaceful world and we will ensure this recognition helps accelerate efforts in their respective fields.”
