Your words are powerful.
'Letters from Amnesty supporters ... were really powerful and helped me to stay strong. They protected us because the authorities knew thousands of people were watching'.
Fred Bauma, pro-democracy activist in Democratic Republic of Congo.
it only takes a few minutes to write a letter or postcard but for someone enduring prison or torture just for protesting peacefully; or someone fighting forced eviction, or for refugees left in limbo it can provide the strength to carry on.
A message of solidarity tells someone like Fred, they're not along It lets their abusers know the world is watching.
There are lots of ways to help:
