Human Rights Day

Today is Human Rights Day and the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The Declaration, adopted by the United Nations in 1948, set out a list of 30 Articles describing fundamendal human rights and freedoms for everyone. Haiti adopted these rights so they are on the books. Sadly, the reality here is quite different. Join us in praying and working for a more just society in Haiti. It is our conviction that the children we help today will be tomorrow's leaders able to make the necessary changes to benefit all Haitians.
