The Human Rights Commission (HRC) is to launch an awareness programme to educate people about human rights.
The HRC has identified that most of the Sri Lankan lacked a proper knowledge about human rights.
The HRC has held an awareness workshop in Anuradhapura for the civil society activists in the North Central Province.
HRC’s North Central Coordination Officer Kumudhini Vithana has said the Commission hoped to create awareness about human rights in the rural areas.
According to Vithana, people needed to know that the HRC assisted people when ever their human rights have been infringed even by the state.
