Congratulations to the Netherlands

As mentioned in today’s Newvision

On the occasion of the abdication of Her Majesty Queen Beatrix and the investiture of His Majesty King Willem-Alexander, the East and Horn of Africa Human Rights Defenders Project sends our warm wishes and congratulations to the leadership and people of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

The Kingdom of the Netherlands has demonstrated consistent support to the promotion and protection of human rights around the world. EHAHRDP takes this opportunity to thank the Netherlands government for its continued support of our mission to maximize the protection of human rights defenders – people and groups that promote and protect civil, cultural, economic, political and social rights through peaceful means – and to enhance awareness of their work nationally, regionally and internationally.

Human Rights Defender of the Month: Malab Alneel

Malab Alneel was only 20 when Sudan’s revolution started in December 2018, but she knew it was the moment to get involved: “I grew up in a house that was very political. All of my sisters are activists, my parents are very involved. Activism has always been there. But for me it started with the revolution. It just felt like a time for change.”
