RESPONSE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

HOW WE ARE SUPPORTING WOMEN SURVIVORS OF WAR DURING THIS GLOBAL HEALTH CRISIS

As cases of COVID-19 increase worldwide, Women for Women International is monitoring and assessing the situation, so we are ready to take steps to protect the health of women we serve in countries affected by conflict, the staff in those countries who deliver our programme and our staff around the world who raise vital funds for this work.
