Challenge

Entire neighborhoods in Lebanon have been destroyed by bombs that killed more than a thousand people. Tens of thousands are homeless, and women struggle to secure the needs of their families as the main sources of food, water, electricity, and medicine have been disrupted. In Gaza also, women are struggling to meet their families’ most basic needs and to maintain some semblance of normalcy for their children through a months-long Israeli military siege, punctuated by periodic bombings.

Solution

MADRE will work with local women to provide food, shelter, medical care, and trauma counseling; and help amplify their calls for an end to the violence, as the caretakers of communities trapped in horrifying circumstances that they did not create.

Long-Term Impact

In a moment when war has strengthened the hands of extremists in the region, we are committed to working with local women from groups in Gaza and Lebanon, who are committed to bringing social justice, equality for women, and peaceful coexistence.
