Charter of HRA

Preface

Throughout history, those who have dedicated themselves to the pursuit of freedom and prosperity for all humanity have left an indelible mark. The neglect and disregard of human rights not only sow the seeds of misery among populations but also foster governmental corruption. We firmly believe in the fundamental truth that when human dignity, honor, and rights are compromised, it becomes our solemn duty to stand up and contend against such injustices, working tirelessly until they are rectified.
