Lawyers for Justice in Libya awarded charity status

August 20, 2013

Lawyers for Justice in Libya (LFJL) is extremely pleased to announce that it has been granted charitable status by the Charity Commission for England and Wales. Although LFJL has since its conception always operated as a non-profit, non-governmental organisation, having charitable status not only confirms this operational model but also means that LFJL will be able to apply for grants and funding that were previously unavailable, as well as enable us to accept charitable donations from individuals or organisations that wish to support our mission and goals. LFJL hopes this positive momentum will lead to an increase in project activities and the growth of the organisation.

“It is credit to LFJL’s work that it was able to achieve charitable status in England and Wales.  This is a great accomplishment for our organisation and a boost to the future of our work,” said LFJL Director Elham Saudi.  “Obtaining charity status allows us to reassure our supporters that our work remains independent and confirms our commitment to promoting human rights in Libya in the long term,” she added.  “We are very proud to have reached this point as an organisation and thank wholeheartedly all those who have supported us in reaching this point.”
