CWN Editor's Note: Highlighting the importance of fraternal solidarity in a world where its absence is “being felt all too intensely,” Pope Francis has sent a message to the winners of the 2024 Zayed Award for Human Fraternity (video of ceremony).

The Zayed Award, named for the founder of the United Arab Emirates, commemorates the Document on Human Fraternity signed by Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar in Abu Dhabi in February 2019.

The 2024 winners are Sister Nelly Leon Correa, a Chilean nun who assists female prisoners; Magdi Yacoub, an Egyptian cardiac surgeon who assists children throughout Africa; and Muhammadiyah and Nahdlatul Ulama, two Indonesian Muslim organizations.
