The Path Ahead

Although the tides may be turning on the fighting in Syria, the question of returning home for Syrian refugees in neither certain nor simple. The crisis in Syria continues with significant gaps in the ability to meet basic needs for millions. For our refugee partners in Lebanon, there is still much work to be done to make improved health and hygiene a reality in the camps and settlements of Akkar district. With your support, we were able to make tremendous strides in 2018 with the establishment of 3 locally run DfG Enterprises and provision of DfG Kits and women’s health education to thousands.

The early part of 2019 has been dedicated to strategic planning and supply chain mapping to ensure that we can maximize the potential impact from our local partners. Khayrieh, our Program Manager in Lebanon, participated in an intensive workshop in January to learn best practices from DfG leaders in other parts of the world. Since returning home, she has been exploring partnerships that will allow us to reach more girls and women, and supporting local Enterprise partners to achieve the best quality possible.

The journey ahead is still difficult for many Syrian girls and women, but solutions for their menstrual cycle shouldn’t be. With the commitment of our Global Giving family, we can reduce the burden of menstrual health and open doorways to new opportunities for girls and women. Thank you for walking this path with us!
