Freedom/Frihet

The universal declaration on the Human rights define the freedom for everyone.

Article 1

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

Article 3

Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.

Article 4

No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.

Article 25

(1) Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.

Article 26

(1) Everyone has the right to education. Education shall be free, at least in the elementary and fundamental stages. Elementary education shall be compulsory. Technical and professional education shall be made generally available and higher education shall be equally accessible to all on the basis of merit.

But still there is 67 million children that are denied the right to education.

1 billion people live in extreme poverty.

21 000 children under the age of 5 die everyday. Reason? Lack of food, clean water and medication.

1.2 million children are exploited and used in different ways of trafficking.

According to UN between 700 000- 4million people are used and forced into trafficking each year.(500 000 women and children are trafficked into Europe)

Time to make a change!

Raise money to a project, run a marathon for charity, help out at a community center. There are many ways to help out. Or support a organization who works to fight for the right to a secure and worthy life for everyone. Thank you for being a hero in you community. Together  we can make a change.
