INDIA'S VACCINE DIPLOMACY
India approves 1 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines for Canada
UNADAP's Executive Director, Dr. Dominic F Dixon has long recommended the benevolence of Indian Prime Minister Modi, to help Canadians with the COVID-19 vaccine, as Canada is a country that is close to his heart. In stating that, Dr. Dixon has also cautioned that matters pertaining to the farmer's protest in India, which Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau had commented on, was unbecoming of him, which drew a flak and a diplomatic reaction. Non-violent, non-partisan protests are a democratic right of an Indian citizen, and is considered an internal matter, not requiring an external intervention.
Indian government has approved one million doses of COVID-19 vaccines for Canada. The development comes days after Canadian PM Justin Trudeau and Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to each other.
During the talks, PM Modi assured the Canadian PM of COVID vaccine supplies. A readout from Indian PM's office said during the talks Prime Minister Trudeau informed his PM Modi about "Canada's requirements of COVID-19 vaccines from India" to which the latter "assured...that India would do its best to support Canada's vaccination efforts, just as it had done for many other countries already".
Later in response to a question in a presser Canadian PM said that his country is "looking at possible extra vaccines coming from India from the Serum Institute". India, which produces 60% of global vaccines, has sent covid vaccines to more than 20 countries.
The vaccine support from New Delhi to Canada comes even as ties were frayed over comments by Canadian PM on the ongoing farmers' protests in India in December 2020. The comments had drawn a strong reaction from India who had lodged a strong protest by summoning the Canadian envoy to Delhi, Nadir Patel, and handing over a demarche that such comments could impact the bilateral ties.

The CB-CID has modified both FIRs - one each for the death of the father, Jeyaraj, and the son, Beniks - and to include murder charges against two sub-inspectors (Raghu Ganesh and Balakrishnan), two constables and two other individuals.

On the occasion of "National Doctor's Day, UNADAP honours our hero, Dr. Hemalatha.
On Monday, the 29th of June, 2020, a message was posted in the WhatsApp group of the past pupils of St. Marys AI School, Chennai, that a person had succumbed to COVID-19 at the Apollo Hospital, Greems Road, Chennai. The entire group had brainstormed as to how best we could reach out this family who was in a dire financial situation. and in chronic grief at the death of the father of the house. At this, a group member, Suresh had given the details of the deceased to Dr. Dominic Dixon of UNADAP, and whilst the entire group stood in prayer, we had spoken to Dr. Hemalatha, that was in-charge of the COVID-19 war room at the hospital, and requested her to waive the amount of ₹3,14,000 that the deceased had owed for the treatment.
Immediately, Dr. Hemalatha had promised Dr. Dixon that she would do her best to help the grieving family. She then spoke to the medical director, Dr. Venkatachellam, and expressed the plight of the family. Immediately, they waived the entire outstanding amount, arranged for the clearance of the body, spoke to the medical inspector to expedite the report, and discharged the body, whilst comforting the family.
UNADAP honours Dr. Hemalatha with a HUMANITARIAN CITATION AWARD and a cash award of ₹25,000.
COVID-19, UNADAP CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY
In response to our civic duty, officers of UNADAP have given large portions of their income to support migrant workers, families with low income and the destitute; with financial assistance and food rations. We have reached out to civilians in the cities of Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad. We have provided face masks and hand sanitizers to Bangalore city police. UNADAP has made financial contributions to the Archdiocese of Bangalore (BMSS Disaster Relief Fund) for their outreach programs towards the distribution of food items to the poor.
As UNADAP remains closed and perhaps uncertain of reopening in the coming months, every single employee will still receive their salaries in full.
We have restrained from posting pictures of our acts of civic charitable duty, as we feel that we need to protect the dignity of the beneficiaries and not reveal their identities.

AFRICAN PEACE MISSION
Dr. Paul Victor, Goodwill Ambassador of MORE TRUST to the African continent, with leaders.
Both the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the African Union Agenda 2063 recognize the importance of peace and stability, not only as critical enablers but also as important components of sustainable development. In line with this aspiration, Africa has also continued, with the support of the United Nations and development partners, to address emerging challenges to peace, security and development, such as the rise of terrorism and violent extremism as well as the growing number of migrants, refugees and internally displaced persons. In this regard, African countries continue to attach great importance to tackling the root causes of conflict such as youth unemployment, inequality, and economic and social exclusion, including through the African Peace and Security Architecture and the African Governance Architecture. Recognizing the critical needs and role of women, the African Union declared 2016 the African Year of Human Rights with Particular Focus on the Rights of Women.
Universal values are being eroded. The rule of law is being undermined. Now more than ever, our shared duty is clear: Let us stand up for human rights — for everyone, everywhere. Thank you.

GENDER EQUALITY | Dr. Dominic F Dixon, Executive Director, UNADAP
"As I derive my dictum from the US declaration of independence, that; "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness." I read that declaration with the inclusive sense that both men and women are created equal; thus have a right to equality."

"Federal/ Political Land Dispute" & "Settlement and Hostage Negotiation."
Training to handle demographic land dispute and settlement of two peoples' group with the endangerment of genocide.
For land settlement, Dr. Dixon had to simulate as the country representative for the right to self determination as a peoples group. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and the United Nations were the observers. The final agreement was to call for a truce and to allow minorities the right to education, the right to mother tongue, the right to public sector jobs and the right of the minority group to run for office. The ultimate goal would be for 'one nation one people'.
In the picture, are members of the hostage negotiation team simulation at UNOV. Not mentioning their names for their privacy, the lady in the picture is a diplomat of Brazil to Rome, the gentleman next to her is a permanent representative to the UNOV from the Arab Nations League and the gentleman next to him was the Mediator, is the First Secretary at the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Vienna.
What we see on television and the dramatic intensity of a hostage situation in nothing compared to a simulation or the real deal.
