PDRA - Order of People's Friendship

Recommended Posts

Order of People's Friendship

Simular to the Soviet Order of Friendship of Nations.

The award " Friendship of Peoples " was founded 24 December 1980.

The award was given to citizens of PDRA, foreign citizen, to enterprises and the organizations, to provinces and cities.

Rewarding by an award was made for:

- oustanding work in business of propagation and strengthening of brotherly friendship of all tribes and nationalities of Afghanistan;

- for achievements in the work directed at growth and strengthening of the national economy;

- for excellent service in the state and national construction;

- for merit in political development, enrichment and a mutual cultural exchange of tribes and nationalities of Afghanistan, for active participation in education of citizens in spirit of friendship and proletarian internationalism, and fidelity to the native land;

- for merit in business of strengthening of defensive power of the PDRA;

- for merit in business of strengthening of the the world and the friendship of peoples.

The award presumably became obsolete with the collapse of the PDRA in 1992.

Here a boxed/documented numbered one. Not clear whether the box is original to the award (but hope to find out).

Seller indicated it was awarded to a Mongolian diplomat who helped Afghan children during the Soviet period in Afghanistan.

If anybody here knows Dari and could help with the document translation and also the number on reverse of the medal I'd appreciate it a lot.

Thanls,

Bob

At least I got the number translated already: 4727

I was surprised that such a high number would come up. Guess these aren't as rare after all.
