A public campaign is taking place in Bishkek and Osh under the slogan “I want peace in Kyrgyzstan”, which is actively spreading the message of peace, harmony and peaceful settlement of the situation. The driving force behind the campaign are active civic activists and internet users.

Our team has developed information leaflets, stickers and T-shirts, calling for peace and harmony of citizens of Kyrgyzstan. Within the framework of the campaign, the team worked on mapping the provision of humanitarian aid and medicine to residents of Osh and Jalal Abad regions.
Also, members of the team helped in the unloading of humanitarian cargo from Bishkek to the southern regions. Number of participants also traveled to Osh city to become familiar with the situation, met with government officials, nongovernmental organizations and to explore possibilities for mitigating inter-ethnic tension.
Our team closely works with other groups from Bishkek and Osh, in particular “Youth of Osh” and Independent Information Centre. The U.S. Embassy in Kyrgyzstan, the National Democratic Institute and the Danish Church Aid are the primary donors of the campaign “I want peace in Kyrgyzstan.”
