Women for Women International helps women survivors of war rebuild their lives
Since 2008, Raja has been intermittently displaced by conflict in Iraq. She has been raising her 5 children alone in a camp for internally displaced people in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq since 2015.
“Before, women only did housework, there weren’t any jobs or training courses for them – only men worked. Now, here in the camp, women are working and men are staying at home because there is no work for men.”
This World Refugee Week, can you help more women like Raja to reclaiming their power and rebuilding their lives?
