    Lithuania allocates funds in support of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights

    In order to support the efforts of the United Nations in the field of human rights, Lithuania has allocated 30 thousand euros to the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).

    The OHCHR is one of the main UN institutions contributing to protection and safeguarding of human rights and freedoms. Lithuania believes that in the context of Covid-19 it is crucial that the response efforts are based on human rights, ensure protection of the most vulnerable groups, promote democracy, rule of law and prevent restrictions of the civic space. 

    Lithuania, in response to the annual OHCHR appeals, has been supporting its activities with voluntary contributions. Total extrabudgetary resources needed for 2021 amount to 385 mln. US dollars.
