Unapologetic ask: support us in upholding human rights

Annual Report 2013 cover

If, like most South Africans, the events of the last few weeks have given you space for reflection on the state of our country, you may have also thought about ways in which you can contribute to its improvement. If your interest lies in the rule of law, human rights and upholding the Constitution, then I am unapologetic in asking you to donate to the Wits Justice Project.

The Wits Justice Project is committed to investigating miscarriages of justice, to exposing cases in which human dignity has been infringed and to improving the functioning of SA’s criminal justice system. Each one of us, as a result of unlawful arrests, botched investigations and unnecessary court delays could potentially be victims of SA’s increasingly dysfunctional criminal justice system. It could be you, it could be me!

Thanks to our generous donors we have been able to dedicate many hours, days and months to conducting in-depth award-winning investigations, exposing torture and injustice on both local and international platforms – unconstrained by the time-limitations of most news rooms. Our 2013 annual report (available here) showcases our achievements towards these goals in the last year.

Your support will enable the WJP to continue our in-depth work and provide a degree of oversight to the police, courts and prisons of South Africa. Please contact me directly, or use the following link on the Wits Foundation web site to make a direct donation: http://www.witsfoundation.co.za/givejustice.asp

Wishing you a safe, happy holiday.
