The Madonna of Nagasaki

The aim of this website is to achieve the inclusion of the Madonna on the UNESCO World Heritage List as a symbol of a non-political plea for world peace and humanitarianism. This statue of the Madonna is not seen here in the context of a symbol of the Roman Catholic faith. Instead, it epitomizes the depth of sufferings of war victims -- not even a religious object is spared by the brutality of armed conflicts. It is also hoped that any pecuniary gains accruing from this campaign will be distributed to victims of armed conflicts, especially children in war-torn areas, all over the world.

The campaign is an activity of the Sata Foundation.
