postheadericon Profile of Ambassador Mussie Hailu

When Ambassador Mussie Hailu visited Hiroshima, Tomoko Watanabe asked him if he would take on the role of representative for ANT-Hiroshima in Africa. Ambassador Mussie Hailu readily agreed to Tomoko-san's proposal, and on his return to his mother country, Ethiopia, he began to raise the profile of ANT-Hiroshima in Africa. So who is Mussie Hailu?

I am so happy to read about the outstanding work of Ambassador Mussie Hailu. I know about his work which he does in his own country in Ethiopia, Africa and the rest of the world. He is Africa Peace hero as clearly stated in the Times News Paper of Rwanda about him. He is truly a world citizen and a living example of peace, love, harmony and the Golden Rule. . I do not know him personally but got the chance to meet so many people from different part of the world who knows him and they told me that Ambassador Mussie Hailu is not a person who only talk about the peace and the Golden Rule but some one who also live accordingly. So many people speak so highly about him and I am so happy now to see that ANT-Hiroshima also appoints him as Representative of the organization to Africa. If we have more dedicated people like Ambassador Hailu we will have peace on Earth. Ambassador Mussie Hailu God blesses you and keep up the good work. You brought a great honor to the people of Africa through out the world. You are our peace hero indeed

Hi David,

Thank you for your comment about Ambassador Hailu. He made a very good impression on Tomoko and the staff of ANT-Hiroshima, as well as on everybody else he met during his time in Japan. Thank you for confirming our good impressions!

What is ANT-Hiroshima?

Asian Network of Trust-Hiroshima, an NGO based in Hiroshima, Japan, draws its inspiration from the experience of the A-bomb survivors who, together with international support, worked to rebuild their shattered city in a spirit of peace and reconciliation. In a similar spirit, ANT-Hiroshima is involved in a range of relief, reconstruction, and peace-building projects in a number of countries, including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nepal, and Bangladesh.

ANT-Hiroshima’s work is rooted in the twin missions of providing material, as well as emotional, support to the people we serve. We bring a human touch to the provision of emergency relief in areas devastated by natural disaster or human conflict. Operating on a small scale at the local level, we share a spirit of warmth and compassion along with such immediate material needs as food, clothing, water, shelter, and medical supplies and services.

In Japan, too, our work is inspired by the spirit of Hiroshima in our efforts to motivate the next generation of Japanese to view the world with compassionate eyes. Through programs in education, we strive to stimulate the awareness and action of young people towards both the material and emotional needs of their local communities as well as the international community.

Tomoko Watanabe,
Founder and Executive Director,
