The World Humanist Congress Gala Dinner raised more than £3,500 for Humanists International's Protect Humanists at Risk project. In many parts of the world, humanists, atheists and other non-religious people are routinely persecuted for their beliefs. Please follow the link and donate to this vitally important project if you can. Thank you.
