Fundraising for new children's hospital in Aleppo, Syria
- Friday, 9 December 2016
Each year on 10 December, Human Rights Day is observed by the international community. On this day in 1948 the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. According to IFHHRO one of the most pressing health and human rights issues in the past years is the continuous attacks on health services in conflict zones. Organizations like Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, Physicians for Human Rights, and the Safeguarding Health in Conflict Coalition have frequently raised awareness on the detrimental effects of bombing and looting of hospitals on the health of the people they serve.
