The Foundation works to protect human rights as defined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Charter of Fundamental Rights and the Geneva Conventions. It aims to protect and support people whose right to freedom and personal security has been violated. Support religious, ethnic and sexual minorities and build understanding between these communities.
We are driven by the desire and need to help those in the refugee crisis and those affected by the crisis.
When one looks at such terrible misfortunes, the feeling that one is a human being first becomes insanely strong. And only then a person of a certain nationality. Humanity is connected in misfortune, in experiencing it. I wish people understood it this way. – Tadeusz Mazowiecki
