Look out for EchoStars as we join the Kangaroo March on September 5th to remember our Anzacs. It is very fitting for ES to join this commemorative March as Fred Hyde; founder of CO-ID whom ES is now associated with in its new school project on Bhola Island, was awarded the 2015 Centenary Anzac Peace Prize.
” “Mr Hyde was selected by the RSL ANZAC Awards Committee for the award of the ANZAC Peace Prize in recognition of
over three decades of philanthropic work rescuing and educating orphaned and abandoned children in Bangladesh, and the promotion of cooperative relationships between the many diverse religious groups in that community”, Rear Admiral Doolan said. “He exemplifies the Spirit of ANZAC within the broader community through his dedication and commitment to others.”
The ANZAC Peace Prize, announced annually, is awarded by the RSL to recognise any outstanding effort by an Australian citizen who has promoted the concept of international understanding and who, in so doing, has made a contribution to world peace.”
