The Foundation for Human Rights in Cuba has published its 2013 Annual Report.
The following are excerpts from the Report:
“Cuba’s civil society made historical strides in 2013, led by human rights defenders and human rights groups supported by the Foundation for Human Rights in Cuba (FHRC). In effect, 2013 may have been the most impactful year of human rights activism in the two decades since FHRC’s founding in 1992.”
“During 2013, FHRC sent partners over 700 units of phones, laptops and other electronic equipment valued at more than $80,000; provided $97,000 in mobile phone recharges to over 350 activists; and facilitated $290,000 in direct humanitarian assistance to hundreds of families of prisoners of conscience, human rights defenders and children. In addition, FHRC’s ground-breaking Call Center, staffed by 6 outstanding Relationship Managers made 7,000 phone calls to Cuba, lasting more than 34,000 minutes, while offering moral support, mentoring, and responding to requests from Cuban human rights defenders. Furthermore, FHRC provided more than 200 sessions of workshops and conferences to over 40 Cuban visiting activists through an External Training center.”
