PPR will be closed from the 15th December 2023 until 3rd January 2024.
Our team will be taking a rest, spending time with family and friends and recharging our batteries for the New Year. But we know human rights problems and campaigns won’t stop for Christmas. We have made a list of available resources and upcoming events, which may be helpful for you or your community while we’re away.
Thank you to everybody who has supported the campaigns over the past year. We look forward to seeing you all again in 2024. From everyone at PPR we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
