When there is an outbreak of war or violence, women suffer most – they experience trauma, sexual violence and the death of loved ones. After the conflict is over, the world’s attention moves on, but women are left to rebuild their families and communities. Women for Women International supports women who live in some of the world’s most dangerous places. Women enrol on the charity’s year-long training programme, where they learn how to earn and save money, improve their family’s health and make their voices heard at home and in their community. Since 1993, the charity has helped over half a million marginalised women survivors of war in 8 conflict-affected countries.
This holiday season, it is more important than ever to spread kindness to those around us. Why not give a virtual gift that could change the life of a woman survivor of war?
£15 could pay for enough vegetable seeds to cover 30 acres and enable a woman to feed her family and sell produce at market.
As a small token of appreciation, you will receive a Women for Women International tote bag, to show you are part of our global sisterhood!*
