Today is the International Day of UN Peacekeepers! On this day we can take a moment to pay tribute to the UN Police and civilian personnel that make so many sacrifices for the sake of others. This year's theme is "Investing in Peace Around the World." The UN peacekeepers invest in peace by "Monitoring ceasefires to protecting civilians, disarming ex-combatants, protecting human rights, promoting the rule of law, supporting free and fair elections, minimizing the risk of land-mines and so much more" - UN. At H.E.R., we also hope to make a difference by investing in peace through our work to protect human rights!
