"The LHRC has been extremely helpful to me, as I arrived in a very sad and despairing state, but they cooperated with me, built my capacity, and advised me until I obtained my right to inheritance"
"We are grateful to the LHRC for this report; this agenda on non-bailable offenses that will be debated in the incoming session of the Parliament, this has enabled us in expanding our knowledge so that we may contribute to Parliament regarding non-bailable offenses"
"LHRC is very helpful for us who are not financially capable because to seek an independent lawyer he/she will need enough money while I am not able to do so, and thus my basic rights would be lost because I am not able to find a lawyer, But LHRC supports us"
