On the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, ADRA Europe makes a strong statement on the continued need to stand up for human rights.

ADRA declaration of human rights 1500On 10 December 1948, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a document to prevent the repetition of the horrific human rights violations that had been committed during the World War ll.

ADRA decoding genomeIn an anniversary document, Decoding the ADRA Genome, we take a look at an early Adventist pioneer for human rights, take an overview of the document itself, and focus on statements from:

  • Mario Brito, President of the Inter-European Division of Seventh-day Adventists
  • Raafat Kamal, President of the Tran-European Division of Seventh-day Adventists
  • Jonathan Duffy, President, ADRA International
  • Joao Martins, Executive Director, ADRA Europe

Commenting on the 70th anniversary, Pastor Kamal writes that his thoughts “turn to Micah 6: 8 to act justly, to love mercy and to walk
humbly with our God. When speaking of rights in the Bible, God rarely mentions what rights we should demand. Instead, He tells us what we are responsible for. God focuses on human responsibilities. We are responsible to enforce justice and extend mercy. If everyone concentrated
on what they are supposed to do, rights wouldn’t be an issue. We would receive what we need.”
