Founded in February 2013, Heritage for Peace's mission is to support heritage workers as they work to protect their collections, monuments and archaeological sites during armed conflict. Heritage for Peace is a NGO based in Girona, Spain.
Syria's Heritage Needs Your Help
Currently the efforts are focused on Syria, where the ongoing conflict has damaged numerous sites including World Heritage sites, threatened museums and libraries, and led to an epidemic of looting and illegal trade in artifacts.
Heritage for Peace believes that Syria's shared cultural heritage can serve as an important ground for dialogue and peacemaking, even during the conflict. Our team of international volunteer experts are working to help educate and support Syrians of all religions and ethnicities who want to protect their cultural heritage.
