Bloggers Unite For Human Rights~November 10, 2008

November 9, 2008 at 7:25 am (Motivation-Inspiration) (, , , )

I realize that is is just November 9, but I thought I would get an early start while blogging for refugees is on my mind. I have never had to face the horrors of how a huge population in the world is treated or the tragedies that they face too often in their lives.  If you are living somewhere that rarely has a natural disaster, or a dictator, or a war, you might never know the terrible side of life either.

There are organizations now that help refugees, but I am sure that in these economic times they need more of our help.  Usually we hear of churches sending missionaries to countries to do what they can.  More help is needed.

If you have not heard about Bloggers United yet, we are a group of individual bloggers who belong to the general group The Blog Catalog.  There are several smaller interest groups on The Blog Catalog that area a great place to interact and learn.  This is where I found out about the group Bloggers Unite.  There are several people, (and I do not want to say, most bloggers, but I just did), who care about Human Rights and will take the time to become informed about a specific area of need and then pass the information along in a blog posting such as this.

Here are some websites that you can visit to find out how you can help, or just learn more information.

They list a whole lot of sites where you can find out what a variety of groups are doing to help the refugees to connect with lost family members and to help with other needs.

The above link is for Refugees United.  We should get this link out to people who might be able to help people find family using this blog.  Here is a quote from the site.  “By registering with nick- names, scars, former locations and other markers only identifiable to family and close friends, everyone can remain ‘invisible’ to all but relatives.

You can find even more links from the Refugees United site.  You can find the links for Save The Children, and that is a great organization.

Please take some time to see how you can help.  You can help by writing to your blog, and clicking on my banner for Bloggers Unite and joining us.
