- About the Luxembourg Red Cross
10 February 2024
On December 10 last year, we began a series on Human Rights. While everyone talks about them, few of us really know what they are and what they stand for.
Articles 6 to 12 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights focus on the question of putting into practice the fundamental rights described in articles 3 to 5. In other words, every individual on earth has rights which must be guaranteed by law, and which must enable him or her to take legal action to defend him or her. In other words, the law and justice must be the same for everyone, in addition to guaranteeing the possibility for everyone to assert their rights before judges.
The Red Cross is naturally committed to defending Human Rights. This commitment was reinforced in 2022 with the signing of the national “Business and Human Rights” Pact. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is one of the reference documents of the Code of Conduct and Ethics of the Luxembourg Red Cross.
