Shoes for Haitian Girls
MADRE provides shoes for young girls living in Haiti's displacement camps. Many of these girls lost their families and their homes in the earthquake. Each day, they must struggle to survive. MADRE's Haitian partner organization, KOFAVIV, runs a center where these girls can access the support and therapy that they urgently need. But, to get to this oasis of safety, these girls urgently need shoes to protect themselves from the rubble-strewn street and from dangerous soil-transmitted infections. project reportread updates from the field

Care in Crisis for Syrian Women and Girls
Syria is enduring one of the world's worst humanitarian crises. Women and girls are suffering widespread rape and forced marriage on top of the mass displacement, starvation and armed attacks threatening millions of civilians. In partnership with grassroots women's groups in Syria and surrounding refugee communities, MADRE is delivering aid and trauma counseling to women and girls. We're also training women to document and prosecute rape as a weapon of war and demand a voice in peace talks. project reportread updates from the field
$2000 to Open New Shelter in ISIS-controlled Iraq
Iraqi women and girls are being taken from their homes and raped. Extremist militants who have taken over huge parts of northern Iraq are bursting into homes and demanding families hand over unmarried daughters. Those that refuse are beaten or killed. Women are fleeing for their lives. Help us open a new shelter in ISIS-controlled territory, where women are at the greatest risk of violence. The shelter will provide refuge, aid and medical care to rape survivors and women at risk of brutalities. project reportread updates from the field
