Help Support Human Rights Defenders at Risk

Noorzia Afridi's office was bombed and her sister shot dead because she promoted women’s' rights in Pakistan. Phyllis Omido was threatened and jailed when she campaigned against a lead smelter that was poisoning people in the slums of Mombassa.

In the most dangerous corners of the world, the bravest people are often the most vulnerable to torture, detention, intimidation and murder. But who stands up for these everyday heroes? Who protects the protectors? They need the most impactful help to stay alive, to keep striving for change. A bulletproof vest, a steel door, a CCTV intruder system, legal help, security training – this is the help they most need – and they need it right now.
