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.
