Profile Information

Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
Current Research:

Medical and Public Health research into the psycho-social (PS), mental health (MH), human capital (HC) /social capital (SC) effects on communities internationally affected by low intensity conflict (LIC) and Small Arms / Light Weapons (SALW). First Application:
The PS/MH, HC/SC effects of anti-personnel mines (APM), explosive remnants of war (ERW), and Humanitarian Mine Action (HMA) in post-conflict Sri Lanka and Kosovo.


Vast attention has been given to the physical/biological effects of conflict; virtually none has been given to the socio-economic and psycho-social impact on affected communities suffering from conflict and post-conflict trauma, which inherently affects a community's ability to respond positively to recovery and development efforts. Often, inattention to these factors will have generational effects in terms of the perpetuation of stress, trauma, and regional security issues connected to continued armed violence. For the first time, we can establish scientific baseline data on affected communities, determining the need for specific interventions, as well as providing hard data-based monitoring and evaluation (M & E) of such interventions based on these scientific, methodological protocols (comprising proprietary IP).

Partners: Harvard Medical School / Disaster Medicine Section, International Center for Disaster Resilience (ICDR), Vrije Universiteit Medisch Centrum (VUMC, Amsterdam, the Netherlands).

Hello KJ,

I have been working on a collaborative peace video project website, and as I understand that you work with HMF, I though you might be interested in contributing. The concept, very basically, is that filmmakers can work together from all over the world, to help each other complete peace videos.

The website is just a basic template, but I'd love to get some feedback on it and get people interested in posting videos soon. Please check it out:


And email me at jcampo@newschoolfilms.com with feedback! Thanks very much!

Easy is to get a place is someone's address book.
Difficult is to get a place in someone's heart.

Easy is to judge the mistakes of others
Difficult is to recognize our own mistakes

Easy is to talk without thinking
Difficult is to refrain the tongue

Easy is to hurt someone who loves us.
Difficult is to heal the wound...

Easy is to forgive others
Difficult is to ask for forgiveness

Easy is to set rules.
Difficult is to follow them...

Easy is to dream every night.
Difficult is to fight for a dream...

Easy is to show victory.
Difficult is to assume defeat with dignity...

Easy is to admire a full moon.
Difficult to see the other side...

Easy is to stumble with a stone.
Difficult is to get up...

Easy is to enjoy life every day.
Difficult to give its real value...

Easy is to promise something to someone.
Difficult is to fulfill that promise...

Easy is to say we love.
Difficult is to show it every day...

Easy is to criticize others.
Difficult is to improve oneself...

Easy is to make mistakes.
Difficult is to learn from them...

Easy is to weep for a lost love.
Difficult is to take care of it so not to lose it.

Easy is to think about improving.
Difficult is to stop thinking it and put it into action...

Easy is to think bad of others
Difficult is to give them the benefit of the doubt...

Easy is to receive
Difficult is to give

Easy to read this
Difficult to follow

Easy is to keep the friendship with words
Difficult is to keep it with meanings.

600 Liberian refugee women and children are facing imminent deportation.

Please sign the petition calling on authorities to insure that the rights of refugees in Ghana are being upheld:


It will be passed on to authorities as soon as we garner enough support.

This petition is co-sponsored by a group of NGOs and individuals who have worked and are currently working in the Buduburam refugee settlement.

Thank you.
