Story

In May and June this year I will be Walking for Peace from Tallinn (Estonia), to Riga (Latvia), Vilnius (Lithuania) and then Warsaw (Poland), a distance of approximately 700 miles.

I will be walking close to a war that is ongoing in Ukraine and very conscious of other wars around the world including the war in Gaza. I have again chosen to raise donations for the non-partisan charity Children of Peace because of their inspiring work funding many organisations that help Israeli and Palestinian children in the Middle East bringing communities together to live and work in peace, side by side. www.childrenofpeace.org.uk

This follows my previous Walks for Peace supporting the charity Children of Peace. In 2015 I walked from Rome to Jerusalem www.2015peacewalk.wordpress.com In 2019 I walked from London to Hamburg (via Brussels and Amsterdam), and in 2023 from Hamburg to Helsinki (via Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm). For further information see www.childrenofpeace.org.uk/paul-haines-walk

As before I will walk wearing signs with information about my walk and a 'peace flag'. I will also carry one of my books in which I ask people to write their Message of Peace. I will engage with as many people as I can to help raise the profile and awareness of peace in this world. As previously, I will spend time in the cities I visit researching for my website www.linkstopeace.org

(The cover photo was taken July 2023 outside the Nobel Peace Centre at the start of my Walk for Peace from Oslo to Stockholm).
