Dr Helen McCue receives Jerusalem (Al Quds) Peace Prize

The co-founder of Union Aid Abroad-APHEDA, Dr Helen McCue, received The Jerusalem (Al Quds) Peace Prize given by the Australia Palestine Advocacy Network (APAN) which recognises the inspirational and extraordinary contributions and devoted efforts of Australians seeking to aid Palestinians in their call for justice. 

Dr McCue has been awarded the prize for forty-one years of passionate advocacy and support for Palestine, through her work with Union Aid Abroad – APHEDA and the union movement.   

“Receiving the Jerusalem Peace Prize is a great honour and I am overwhelmed and humbled indeed. It is particularly poignant at this time as Palestinians in both Occupied Gaza and West Bank are suffering unbelievable, horrific hardship and brutal violations of their basic human rights, for life, for shelter, water and food. I salute all of the health workers, first responders, journalists and many others who have lost their lives serving their community. And I salute all those who in spite of a continuing genocide and crushing apartheid continue to call for peace with their neighbours.”
