Virtual ways to support women survivors of war

Run for the Congo Participants, 2012

FUNDRAISE WITH US

Coronavirus has changed our lives and the impact is being felt across the world. Poverty, conflict, and gender discrimination make the women we serve most vulnerable to infectious diseases.

The pandemic has disrupted fundraising at a time when women survivors of war need our support more than ever.

Here’s how you can help and raise vital funds for women living in the world’s most dangerous places, whilst staying safe and healthy. As lockdown rules ease, we're also excited to offer you places in some of London's best running events. 

Get involved in virtual fundraising with Women for Women International!

Have your donation matched by your employer

If you fundraise for Women for Women International, make sure to ask your employer if they run a matching gift programme. Employers are often happy to double or triple match their employees' donation.

Corporate matching is a great way to boost your fundraising as the money you raise will make even more of an impact on the lives of the women we serve, at no extra cost.

Be Inspired By Our Amazing Supporters

Shevolution

"The biggest success for us personally was that the entire project from start to finish was created exclusively by women, for women, and that we are now able to donate the fruits of this labour to sisters in need of support."

Selina McCole

"Having been blessed with peace, freedom and opportunity, I feel a sense of duty to help women who have not enjoyed such privileges, and who through no fault of their own have suffered terrible losses and must feel as if the outside world has forgotten about them."

Anne Boisier-Fouché

"When I received the inspiring email about hosting a Share event, I immediately thought that this was something I had to do: sharing a meal with my friends and telling them about Women for Women International fit perfectly together."
