The head quarter is situated at New Delhi and the Global presence includes America, Africa, Russia, London, Switzerland, China, Nepal and Bangladesh. The foundation instituted the Gandhi Mandela Awards during the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi to celebrate those who have carried forward the legacies of Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela. International Yoga Guru Swami Ramdev is the Patron of the Foundation while the Chairman of the Foundation is India’s Hindu Spiritual leader Swami Avdheshanand Giri ji Maharaj.
President Trump is considered to be one of the biggest leaders in the world. He is known as a true humanitarian who has spread the message of peace around the world. Some of the peace initiatives taken by him include:
The “meeting of the century” he held with North Korea’s supreme leader Kim Jong Un which opened the door to peace and reconciliation after a long history of hostility between the two nations
After some very important meetings, including my meeting with President Xi of China, I will be leaving Japan for South Korea (with President Moon). While there, if Chairman Kim of North Korea sees this, I would meet him at the Border/DMZ just to shake his hand and say Hello(?)!

The relationship between Donald Trump US president and North Korea's leader has been turbulent over the past few years. It's ranged from insults and threats in 2017 to the then historic meeting in 2018 where the US President says "We fell in love". Trump recently tweeted about the good health of Kim when there were rumours of North Korean being ill.
Kim Jong Un is in good health. Never underestimate him!
