Human Rights First Rwanda Association (user currently living in RWANDA) posted for gay lesbian transgender bisexual intersex straight readers on 11/04/2014 tagged with human rights
Dear sir/madam.

We are a Human Rights organization from Rwanda(Human Rights First Rwanda Association) that has been actively engaged in defending the rights of sexual minorities in Rwanda and the region at large.

We are very much credited with the campaign that lead to Decriminalize LGBTI'S in the new Rwandan penal code.

Our concern still is the stigma and discrimination they continue to face as result of their sexual orientation. And lack of access to health facilities , justice system and freedom of association . And now that most African states have stated enacting strict criminal laws targeting sexual minorities it has become a threat even to the achievements we have managed to secure in Rwanda

A lot of Advocacy and Human Rights education initiatives are needed to support sexual minorities in Rwanda and the great lakes region.

It is against this background that today we have initiated a project that Upholds sexual minority rights in the great lakes

individuals and organizations can contribute through the below link and receive a tax deduction from Global Giving.


Kindly spread the word and share the information to support this cause.

We look forward to your assistance in this regard.

With warm regards

Nzovu Job Ruzage

Executive Director

It really is occasionally called & #3 4; the automobile & #3 4;amassing, when the insurance QuotesChimp opts never to fix your automobile except to pay for its worth to you. When the firm totals your vehicle, you get exactly what the automobile is  4;worth 4; in the available marketeven if (as-is frequently true) this sum of money is significantly less than it costs to truly change the automobile.

Basically they are the quotations from viroaus documents, but considering he had drawn Ulleundo map with Usando east to it in 1834, the next sentence sound weird to me."其西又有于山島亦廣闊"Other things I noticed were;"鬱陵島在本縣正東海中右于山一云武陵一云羽陵一云艼陵""三峯岌嶪聳空""倭人謂之竹島與日本隱岐州相近"" 成宗二年有告別有三峯島者及遣朴宗元往覓之因風濤不得泊而還同行一舡泊鬱陵島"And there is no mention of Usando is Japanese Matsushima. http://ankent.com [url=http://zubsobckio.com]zubsobckio[/url] [link=http://twlgchurlu.com]twlgchurlu[/link]

This is a very good question. As I've gotetn older it has become easier to be honest when I'm not feeling "okay". I may not say how "not okay" I am. But I will let them know that things could be better. When I ask someone else how they are, if their response is mediocre, I am likely to ask them what is up.
