A YEAR OF HOPE AND FREEDOM


The world celebrates HAPPY NEW YEAR, 2012 on Sunday.

Millions are waiting every single second for the clock to strike 00:00 or Zero Hour.

Then all will be lost in the euphoria of dancing, singing and drinking. The day will be that of excitement and the night will be that of pleasure.

That is what characterizes the arrival of a NEW YEAR and generates in public the sensation of experiencing a new feeling in life.

 

All this happens in the background while:

  • 1 billion people endure chronic hunger worldwide.

  •  1 billion people are non-literate adults.

  • More Than 100 Million Women Are Missing.

  •  Every year in India, an estimated 500,000 female foetuses are aborted because they are female.

The list is endless. Are they reasons to celebrate?

Let this year of 2012 prove that saying wrong.

Let’s demonstrate that we can keep promises.

Let us mobilize the resources — human and financial — needed to translate our hope into reality. 

Let the year of 2012 give millions of people around the world the key to a future of hope and freedom.

WISHING YOU A HAPPY NEW YEAR
