URGENT: Holiday Matching Gift BONUS Offer for Women's Resource Center

Your monthly gift helps girls like Sreysor

Hello and happy holidays! I have great news to share with you: In an act of extraordinary holiday cheer, an anonymous donor has offered to match recurring gifts to Women’s Resource Center’s project for rest of this month! This means that when you commit to give monthly to WRC right now, your first gift doubles to help girls like Sreysor, pictured here.

Although her life in Cambodia afforded her only an 8th grade education, thanks to your kind help, 16-year-old Sreysor just completed WRC’s two-month women’s health course. Here’s what she told us afterward: “I think it’s very important that I understand now that when I get married, I can make a decision not to have a baby if we can’t afford it yet.”

Sreysor is spreading the word, too: “After 7 sessions of WRC’s health education workshop, I visited home and shared this information with my sister and with my neighbor, who has many children because she didn’t know about family planning. After sharing this, I saw her again later. She said, ‘Now I use a [birth control] method that my husband doesn’t know about because if he knew, he wouldn’t allow me to use it.’”

With your help, we’re not only reaching the girls in our classes – through them, we’re educating and empowering entire communities of women.

Your monthly gift to WRC helps ensure that we can continue our fight to empower Cambodian girls through health education they simply can’t get anywhere else.

Please act now so we don’t miss out on this excellent matching gift opportunity!

Monthly commitments up to $100 will be matched, but only if enough people sign on to activate this time-sensitive offer. A gift in any amount truly does make a difference:

  • $10 a month provides educational materials for 8 women in need
  • $30 a month provides a women's health and contraception session for 8 teenage girls
  • $100 a month Provides positive parenting skills for 8 parents

For more information about the offer, please visit the GlobalGiving website.  Thank you so much for your continued support of Women’s Resource Center Cambodia. Your generosity is changing women’s lives every day. 

Sincerely,

Sally Douglas
