AFAD has a simple challenge for the public. Use this as your Facebook profile picture and nominate 3 others to do the same to raise awareness on the issue of enforced disappearance for the International Day of the Disappeared.
Many people think that enforced disappearance is a thing of the past, but the truth is, enforced disappearance continues to happen by the thousands in many countries, specially in Asia.
August 30 is the U.N. declared International Day of the Disappeared.The UN reports that +43,000 people have disappeared without a trace around the world. Thousands of cases remain unreported, and more add to the long list of desaparecidos everyday.
Nominating is caring, thank you!
