As the pandemic continues to spread, our partners must continually adapt their work to keep their communities safe and our partner, the Organization for Women’s Freedom in Iraq (OWFI) is no exception. Throughout the pandemic, OWFI has worked hard to provide safe spaces for women and girls seeking shelter. And they’ve done everything they can to ensure those shelters are healthy places to be, stocking them with hygiene materials and protective equipment.
A critical aspect of OWFI’s services is offering holistic empowerment services for women, but gathering for those services, such as mentorship sessions or trainings, has become impossible due to COVID. That’s where you came in.
Thanks to your help, MADRE was able to increase OWFI’s ability to connect with local women by supporting a secure Zoom account for their use. Now, OWFI can safely organize empowerment sessions and one-on-one mentorship sessions -- services that are even more vital during such stressful and uncertain times. Thank you for making this simple, yet vital service available to our partners -- we’re so grateful to have you standing with us!
