When our Rafto laureates recently convened in Geneva, they penned a joint declaration to express their unwavering solidarity with the children of Palestine.

"Palestinian children have endured genocide for seven months. The international community must imidiatly force Israel to be held accoutable for these crimes against Palestinians, says Khaled Quzmar, director of Rafto laureate 2023 Defense for Children International - Palestine.

"Enough hypocrisy"

Rafto laureate 2019, Rouba Mhaissen, agrees.

– We want to demand accountability for the crimes that Israel has commited on the Palestinain people. And we want to demand the application of international humanitarian law, without dicrimination. Enough hypocrisy and double standards," Mhaissen emphasized.

Solidarity from around the world

Bishop José Raúl Vera López from Mexico, recipient of the Rafto prize in 2010, conveyed his prayers for the Palestinians.

– You will be in peace, with justice and you will be free, Vera López, says.

The message from our laureates resounds clearly:

They stand in solidarity with the children of Palestine and unequivocally call for peace in the region.
