Dreams fulfilled
Dreams fulfilled
Adriana Diosa´s participation in our Defenred Respire House project has finished. Adriana, human rights defender from Colombia, arrived at Madrid with her husband Oscar and her son Victor on June 26th, and they have returned to Medellin, Colombia, on August 14th. Almost 50 days in our first experience Respire House project. What could we stand out?

First of all, the satisfaction of living a dream fulfilled. An idea that was born after long talks between good friends, different attempts that were not successful, testing and looking for... Finally we arrived at here. An adventure that has been done, that is not the end but the beginning of something we hope will continue. But seeing all we achieved, although we are just beginning, produces enormous excitement.

Everybody has assessed this first experience highly satisfactory. Adriana, Oscar and Victor rested, recovered, took care themselves, learned, and created networks. In short, everything we set as our Respite House objectives have been carried out; and the final evaluation we did together told us in this way. We have strengthened and confirmed our belief that this project is needed for human rights defenders, and encouraged us to continue so that more people can benefit from it.

Defenred is born
Defenred is born
A few months ago Defenred was born with the spitrit to become a network of support for Human Rights Defenders.
We are people working for people, and we think that HRD help us all, they are the architects of real changes in the terrible realities we live with daily or, at least, see in the media. We are constituted as a non-profit, independent organization, working to provide direct assistance to human rights defenders worldwide. If we strengthen and support the work these people do, we are promoting real change, allowing more people access to equal rights and transforming the reality of people that have been forgotten by society. We are volunteers, no overheads so almost all of the money you contribute reaches the people who need it most

Why defenred is born

DEFENRED
Human Right Defenders risk their lives every day to build a freer and fairer word, where human rights are respected. They are brave people willing to do anything to fight for what they believe in, and therefore, are the real leaders of change.

Most of these human rights defenders persist in their work despite the threats, assaults and harassment they receive, devoting much time and effort to improve the communities in which they live, usually with little resources.

Defenred is born to support these change agents in a direct way with the firm intention that they have the ability to develop the important work they do.
