In our continued efforts to provide support to Syrian women war refugees, MADRE has co-organized a health workers delegation to the Middle East. Right now, public health and women's health professionals are in Jordan and Turkey, both countries with a high population of Syrian refugees, providing crucial skills training, equipment and supplies to local organizations working with Syrian refugee women.
With your support, MADRE also sent a shipment of vital humanitarian aid supplies to be distributed among refugee women and their children and to local health organizations providing services to these displaced populations. This shipment included baby clothing and supplies as well as absorbent and washable menstrual pads. Other essential pre-natal and maternal health supplies included in the shipment were safe birthing kits, exam gloves, and supplements such as folic acid and iron tablets.
Your support is part of our continued effort to bring humanitarian aid and peace to women and their families facing crisis and poverty. Thank you for backing this crucial work!
