Care in Crisis for Syrian Women and Girls

Thank you so much for your support of MADRE’s Care in Crisis for Syrian Women and Girls. With your support, MADRE and our on-the-ground partners at the Syrian Women’s League (SWL) are there for women and girls refugees targeted with sexual violence.

Thanks to your backing, MADRE and SWL have:

  • Delivered lifesaving aid and services to displaced women and children, including food, clean water, hygiene kits and trauma counseling.
  • Provided 100 women refugees with reproductive health supplies, including IUDs. This enables women to better plan their pregnancies through this vulnerable, insecure time.
  • Delivered over 100 windup flashlights for women and girls living in insecure and unlit camps to help guard against nighttime attacks.
  • Organized 10 trainings, each attended by 20 to 30 participants, to build the capacity of first responders. We provided information to Syrian doctors, nurses, midwives and other providers to identify and treat women and girls survivors of violence and to document their cases for future prosecutions. 

Thank you for your vital support of this project. Because of you, Syrian women and girls have are beginning to heal from the traumas they’ve endured. We can do this work only because we have your support. Thank you!

Thank you so much for your support of MADRE’s Care in Crisis for Syrian Women and Girls project on GlobalGiving. Syrian refugees are experiencing one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises. Women and girls are suffering widespread rape and forced marriages on top of mass displacement, starvation and more.

But thanks to you, MADRE and our on-the-ground partners are responding. We’re delivering aid and trauma counseling to women and girls. And we’re training women to document and prosecute rape as a weapon of war and demand a voice in peace talks.

With your support, MADRE is:

  • Delivering Humanitarian Aid. MADRE and our on-the-ground partners are meeting urgent needs by providing humanitarian aid—including life-saving food, medicine, clothing and security supplies, such as solar-powered flashlights to prevent nighttime rapes—for women and children in refugee camps, clinics and birthing centers in Syria, Lebanon and Turkey.
  • Supporting a School for Refugee Women and Children. MADRE is supporting a school in Lebanon, near the Syrian border, where 100 refugee women and children receive an education, counseling, food and clean water.
  • Advocating for Human Rights. Through our trainings, MADRE increases the capacity of Syrian women’s organizations to document violence against women. This documentation is used to demand accountability at the UN and to bring women's voices to peace talks.

Thank you so much for supporting this vital, life-sustaining work. We couldn’t have done this work without you.
