Members of the Peace Meditation Group at the United Nations assisted  with the Rights of the Child, Australian  Benefit Concert for UNICEF on  12 December 1976 in the UN General Assembly Hall.

A very gracious and appreciative letter of gratitude was received from UNICEF expressing thanks for the members of the meditation group participation and “the very kind and reassuringly committed disposition of each one”.



16 December 1976

       I am sending this letter to you as the Secretary of the Meditation Group at the United Nations to convey our heartfelt thanks to every member of your group who have so kindly and readily given their time to help at the Australian UNICEF benefit concert last Sunday.

As I understand from Elfi Lunkenheimer, some members of your group actually postponed a concert in Queens which was scheduled for that day in order to be able to help us. Your immediate response to our last-minute request for help is deeply appreciated and the very kind and reassuringly committed disposition of each one of you made it a real pleasure to work with you.

UNICEF is most grateful, indeed, f0r the continuous support your group has been kind enough to give us, and we hope that there will be ‘many more occasions in the future for us to work together.

With many thanks and best wishes for the Christmas season and a happy and successful New Year,

Yours sincerely,


Jack C.S. Ling

Director, Information Division
