Some images stay in my mind forever. The old man, dressed in grey, performing a ‘prayer’ with the yellow and white Flag of Compassion of the Unda Foundation is one of these pictures. Praying and compassion, in my opinion, are closely related. Compassion is a universal quality and it is important to assist in spreading this throughout the world.

Another reason I like the Unda Foundation is that the idea of compassion is understood in a very general way; compassion can be felt for anything, anywhere, it is not related to a specific country, culture or humanitarian problem. Wherever or whenever there is a need, the
Flag of Compassion should be raised.

For these reasons I am delighted to be on the Committee of Recommendation of the Unda Foundation, and to be able to put my energy into raising this flag as often as possible.
