The World Congress of Families (www.worldcongress.org
), is a project of the International Organization for the Family (www.profam.org
) and unites and equips leaders worldwide to promote the natural family as the fundamental and only sustainable unit of society and to defend the sanctity and dignity of every human life from conception to natural death. As the 1948 United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights observes, "The family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the state."
