Our work in Palestine
Adapting to Urgent Needs
We are working with local Women’s Rights Organisations in the West Bank to serve marginalised Palestinian women who face violence, food insecurity, and unemployment.
Why women in conflict
Women affected by war and conflict are forced to overcome the most daunting challenges
When war and insecurity take hold, women bear the heaviest burden of violence, poverty and inequality. Despite these stark disadvantages, women are instrumental in caring and providing for their families at times of crisis and in rebuilding their communities post-conflict.

Blogs and updates
The women we serve are all survivors of war or conflict – but far too many have survived violence against women as well. Despite the trauma, they continue to push for change. They rebuild their lives while working towards a brighter future for their children, and many become activists to drive wider, long-lasting change for their communities. In this blog we share the stories of five women, Nabintu from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mila from Ukraine and Grace, Hadiza and Joyce from Nigeria.
In 2023, we celebrated 30 years of impact. We have only been able to reach 583,700 women because so many other incredible members of our global community have been with us. Even as wars rage on, our combined commitment to women everywhere and the power of each and every woman we serve continues to fuel us.
Shocking statistics and clickbait headlines perpetuate damaging stereotypes about refugees. By unpicking common myths and misconceptions, we increase our understanding and are better placed to help refugees heal and rebuild their lives.
Since our origins during the Bosnian War in 1993, Women for Women International has reached 553,437 marginalised women in 14 conflict-affected countries.
When war and insecurity take hold, women bear the heaviest burden of violence, poverty and inequality. Learn more about why supporting women survivors of war is so important.
