Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless and Universal Declaration on Human Rights
- Adapted from Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals
Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless (ABQHCH) had a very clever idea: cite the Universal Declaration on Human Rights (which is observed today, Dec. 10) as part of its pitch to raise funds for its operations. While the organization is up front about raising money, the brochure that was sent out to potential donors also seeks to enlighten, educate and, most of all, celebrate a 65-year-old document that spells out the basic human rights of all individuals on Earth. Article 25 has special relevance to the mission of ABQHCH.
