4 associations that defend basic human needs

Our world today is the result of different wars –many of them were so long and difficult that bringing back peace now has become tough. Indeed, there are many other sources of violence in this world apart from wars, atrocities are committed daily in several parts of the world, profaning human rights: war crimes, physical abuse, torture, child labor, violence against women, and so on and so forth.
