Support KHRP Today and Help Better the Lives of More Than 30 Million

Here at KHRP, we want to help create a future based on justice, equality and the rule of law, for those living in the Kurdish regions, but also globally.  Of course this is no small task, which is why we are appealing to all of our friends and supporters to lend a helping hand. As a new year dawns, we are calling on you to help us raise vital funds in support of KHRP’s continued work to promote and protect human rights across the Kurdish regions of Turkey, Iraq, Iran, Syria and the Caucasus.  

In 2009, we have witnessed many changes in these regions, such as in the way that Kurdish rights are now being discussed and considered. But as you will have read in our news bulletins, there is still much to achieve in the upcoming year. The ongoing persecution and discrimination felt by the ordinary person living in the Kurdish regions, continues to demand a consistent and long-term response. By fighting for legislative change and advancing human rights and the rule of law, we can make a difference to the lives of more than 30 million people living there and elsewhere, in a durable and more sustainable way.

Over the past 17 years, KHRP has worked tirelessly to challenge the appalling abuse of human rights perpetrated by the State authorities in this part of the world. And it has achieved a remarkable success rate, not least in its complaints against Turkey, Armenia and Azerbaijan before the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR), in which is has obtained a favourable ruling in 92% of its cases.

While continuing to work to abolish torture, ill-treatment and extra-judicial killings through our advocacy, trainings and publications, as the regions continually change, we are also working to build a strong human rights-based foundation through our cross-border trainings; women’s rights advocacy; and conferences, roundtables and workshops. These foster discussion on the hard-hitting issues that must be addressed to end the decades old conflict in this locale.
In these tough economic times, we urgently need your support towards all areas of our work in 2010. Your contribution, however big or small—from giving a donation or organising a speaking event, to simply shopping online or searching the web— will help to ensure the concept of universal human rights, irrespective of race, religion, sex, political persuasion, sexual orientation or other beliefs or opinions, translates into a practical local reality.  

For details on the different ways you can give, visit the How to Help section of our website. You can also support KHRP’s work in the usual way by making online donations through our website, making cheques/ postal orders payable to the Kurdish Human Rights Project or by calling KHRP’s Development Department on +44 207 405 3835 to donate by telephone.
