Organization: Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust
Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust (HART) was set up by Baroness (Caroline) Cox fourteen years ago with the mandate to undertake advocacy and provide aid to those who are, or who have recently been, suffering oppression and persecution in various countries across the world. HART works to provide lasting change through aid and advocacy for those suffering oppression and persecution. We work with communities in active conflict zones (such as Burma, South Sudan and Sudan) and postconflict areas still devastated by war (such as Nagorno-Karabakh, northern Uganda and Timor-Leste).
HART relies on first-hand evidence of human rights violations, using this as a basis for a powerful twin-track programme of international advocacy in arenas such as the House of Lords and the media, and targeted aid-work focusing on sustainable community development, local partnership and regional networks of support.
