The power of sisterhood in action
FOR A WOMAN WHO HAS EXPERIENCED THE WORST OF HUMANITY, YOUR MESSAGE WILL SHOW HER THAT SHE IS NOT ALONE OR FORGOTTEN
Many of the women we serve have been uprooted from their homes and lost family, friends, and everyone they depended on for support. Anxiety, depression and low self-esteem thrive in isolation.
Your words of support will tell her she’s got a friend she has never met, someone who shares her hopes and believes in her abilities: to rebuild her life, return to her home, give her children a brighter future.
Your words will make a difference
Since we launched the #MessageToMySister campaign, we have seen the impact your messages of support have on the women we serve. Thousands of you have sent in messages and joined our global movement.
That’s why for International Women's Day 2020, we asked you again to send a message of hope, friendship, and sisterhood to a woman survivor of war.
