International Women’s Day: How do we support girls?
International Women’s Day is commemorated globally to bring attention to issues such as gender equality and violence and abuse against women.
According to UNCHR, 50 per cent of refugees, internally displaced, or stateless populations are women and girls.
Women refugees and internally displaced women experience marginalisation, sexual and gender-based violence. At least 1 in 5 refugees or displaced women are estimated to have suffered from sexual violence.
In refugee camps, some women and girls may be kidnapped, trafficked, or forced into marriage.
How can we help?
At UK Care for Children, we actively work with women and girls in refugee camps to provide them the support they need to flourish. With female headed households, we deliver vital financial aid, medical aid, and income generation.
With your donations, the UKC4C team have also funded vocational education for girls which will give them the best start in life.
Donate today and improve the lives of refugees.
