Beach Terrace Care Center takes part in Human Rights Day

(December 15, 2014) Long Island, New York – Beach Terrace Care Center proudly celebrates Human Rights Day. In 1950, the United Nations General Assembly declared December 10 as Human Rights Day. This holiday was created to raise international awareness about the undisputable rights and protection that all humans are entitled to. On December 10, 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was accepted by the United Nations and is considered to be the first doctrine on the promotion for the preservation and maintenance of human rights. This declaration has pathed the way for future human right bills and laws.

“Promoting human rights is one of the core purposes of the United Nations, and the Organization has pursued this mission since its founding.  Then, as now, the key to success is the political will of Member States. It is States, in the first instance, that are obliged to protect human rights and prevent violations at a national level, and to stand up when other States fail to live up to their commitments.  This is not always easy, and over the past 20 years we have seen genocide and many other appalling and large-scale violations of international human rights and humanitarian law,” stated Ban Ki-moon, UN Secretary General in 2013.

“Here at Beach Terrace Care Center, we believe that human rights is one of the noblest causes. It is our duty, as denizens of this earth, to strive to establish and protect equals rights and protection to all of mankind,” Martin Zwick, administrator at Beach Terrace Care Center.
