DMIA Supports Peace Project



The Diamond Manufacturers and Importers Association of America announced its support of The Peace Project, a grass-roots group that provides aid to amputees from Sierra Leone.

The group’s Operation Rise will distribute 10,000 pairs of crutches to those in need throughout Sierra Leone on World Peace Day.

Peace Project CEO will address the group’s general membership meeting on Sept. 7 in New York.

“I consider it an honor to have my name and that of the DMIA associated with The Peace Project and Operation Rise,” said Ronald Friedman, president of DMIA, in a statement.
