#MessageToMySister

FOR A WOMAN WHO HAS EXPERIENCED THE WORST OF HUMANITY, YOUR MESSAGE WILL SHOW HER THAT SHE IS NOT ALONE OR FORGOTTEN

Send a message of support and solidarity to a woman survivor of war and show her she's not alone.

Your personal message will be translated and delivered directly to a woman in our programme, telling her you’re standing alongside her.

YOUR WORDS WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE

SEND A MESSAGE OF HOPE

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, open a business, give her children a brighter future.
