Japan: Awards to the aid manager for Kurds in Kurdistan-Iraq 29.6.2006 

 




Japan, June 29, -- A woman who managed aid to Kurds in northern Iraq was one of four people Wednesday who were honored at the second annual Nakasone Yasuhiro Awards at a ceremony at Capitol Tokyu Hotel in Tokyo.

The Institute for International Policy Studies gave Miho Kishitani of the nonprofit organization Peace Winds Japan the Award of Excellence and 1 million yen.

Kishitani managed Peace Winds relief work for the autonomous Kurdistan region in northern Iraq from 2000 to 2003.

The IIPS, chaired by former Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone, described Kishitani as "a role model for young people working in nongovernmental organizations and NPOs to someday emulate."

Tsuyoshi Ito, a professor of political science and economics at Meiji University, Pia Bennagen Raquedan, deputy executive director of Pulse Asia Inc. of the Philippines, and Wayan Karja, dean of the faculty of visual art and design of the Indonesian Institute of the Arts, each received the Incentive Award.
