SOCIAL, HUMANITARIAN, CULTURAL COMMITTEE
•Eradicate extreme poverty for those living under $1.25/day
•Developing future response and preparation for future pandemics
The Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural Committee (SOCHUM), focuses on issues dealing with fundamental human rights in the international community. SOCHUM was founded in 1945 in reaction to the establishment of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights. It promotes and enforces basic freedoms and ideals meant to be enjoyed by the entire international community such as the right to life and the right to live off of stable income over $1.25/day.
Poverty has been a struggle regardless of time where people suffer under difficult living conditions leading up to severe diseases or even death. These circumstances become worse against unexpected pandemics as we saw these last two years. With this committee our expectation is to prepare for the unknown while supporting one another.
