Why donate to RAID?
RAID has been at the forefront of holding companies to account for human rights abuses and financial impropriety. We filed the first case under the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, and have since been involved in filing around two dozen complaints, including spearheading all the complaints against companies allegedly involved in the illegal export of natural resources from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Whilst there has been significant progress on some issues that RAID has campaigned on since the organisation was founded, there is still deadlock over the issue of legal accountability for serious corporate-related human rights violations. RAID advises and raises issues fearlessly, and has standing with a number of influential bodies ranging from the UN and OECD to the US Securities and Exchange Commission and International Conference on the Great Lakes Region.
RAID's work is painstaking and longterm, and we rely on the generosity of our sponsors and donors. Please contribute to RAID’s investigative work and pioneering efforts to promote respect for human rights and prevent corporate abuse in developing countries.
