In connection with this, the European Foundation of Human Rights (EFHR) organized the trip do the Medininkai Culture Centre in order to celebrate this special day and to acquaint the inhabitants of the town with our activity. The tent of our Foundation attracted plenty of the curious and interested, among whom were both inhabitants of Medininkai and the guest taking an active part in the aforementioned event.

The EFHR, according to the tradition, made accessible the informative materials (including brochures, fliers, gadgets etc.) to all those expressing an interest, which immediately aroused curiosity all of the participants. They were also given a unique opportunity to consult the lawyers of our Foundation. Our employees explained the scope of our activities, forms of help, the won issues, as well as the cooperation with other organizations of human rights.
