Human Right Defenders risk their lives every day to build a freer and fairer world, where human rights are respected. They are brave people willing to do anything to fight for what they believe in, and therefore, are the real leaders of change.
Defenred is born to support these change agents in a direct way with the firm intention that they have the ability to develop the important work they do.
Types of assistance offered by the organisation:
The work human rights defenders do in many countries of the world means they have to deal with stressful situations, including threats or direct risk to their lives or to their families. Defenred offers to HRD the chance to travel to Spain, specifically the Northern Sierra of Madrid, for a period of several weeks of rest to be used for their physical and psychological recover.
