WHRIN Launch

I am delighted and excited to announce the formal (re) launch of WHRIN today 31st December 2012. We have chosen today to launch this exciting new social enterprise in order to mark the last day of the 400th Anniversary of the hangings of the Lancashire witches in my hometown of Lancaster, UK. WHRIN hopes to work with you to ensure that such incidences no longer occur anywhere around the world in another 400 years time.

Whilst we look forward to an exciting new year ahead with all the many interesting projects that WHRIN has planned we do so remembering the countless people around the world who face a less promising 2013. Thousands of people around the world this year will suffer gross violations of their rights, and sometimes death, due to the belief that they are “witches” or “possessed”. Most victims of such abuse will be the most vulnerable members of society – women, children, elderly and the disabled. ¬†As WHRIN’s work develops and grows over the coming years, putting an end to the injustice faced by such people will remain our driving motivation.

I am really looking forward to working with you to build a vibrant network of committed people across the world. Please do get in touch if you have any ideas for how we may be best able to do this.

Wishing each of you a very happy and healthy 2013.

Gary

Founder/Executive Director
