1. Intro

These are busy and troubling times.  Despite a ceasefire in the war against Gaza, the ongoing siege, trauma and suffering of the Palestinians continues.  Below is a summary of public work undertaken by IHRC in the last week or so, on the issue of Palestine and so many others.  Sadly we cannot cover many issues, but with your continued support and donation we can start to address more in what are increasingly austere times.

If you would like to donate to IHRC please contact the office on +44 20 8904 4222 or or download a copy of our latest newsletter and fill in one of the donation forms and return to us:
