Thank you to all supporters of our London bus campaign

STWR would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributed to our bus advertising campaign!  

We were finally able to launch the campaign on the 13th May, with 3 buses displaying full-scale adverts with our call for Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights—for adequate food, housing, healthcare and social security for all.

The buses are running on several routes throughout north and central London, UK, carrying a message to provoke the public imagination about raising our voice for economic sharing to end hunger and poverty.

As many of our supporters will be aware, we have been trying to create awareness about the importance of Article 25 in many different ways over recent years—through public events, through our global postcard campaign as well as through a variety of billboard publicity fundraisers. The Covid pandemic slowed down much of our initial efforts, but we successfully raised almost £11,000 for the buses campaign and hope to do a lot more of this kind of publicity in the future.

But we cannot do it alone and a lot depends on the support so many of you have graciously given us in the past.

To have a more frequent and sustained campaign, we hope more people may be able to make a small monthly contribution. This will allow us to plan ahead and think of new and different ways to bring Article 25 into the consciousness of ordinary people. Only a sustained campaign will have the effect that we are hoping for.

Never has the need for a global movement around Article 25 been greater. Governments seem to have an endless pot of money to invest in wars and polluting industries, but empty pockets when it comes to fulfilling the basic needs of the least privileged.

Let’s unite our voices for this simple call for sharing and bring hope to the millions of people who have barely enough to survive!

With gratitude for all your support
