We've partnered with the Haitian Women's Collective to mobilize medical supplies, food aid, and clean water to those affected by the earthquake. As they recover, they are also responding with proven methods to prevent gender-based violence, which invariably surges in the wake of disasters like this.
In Afghanistan, our priority is preventing women and girls from being assassinated and enslaved by the Taliban. Right now, fighters are going door to door, painting big pink marks on the houses of women they deem to have stepped out of line. We know from experience that these marks are death warrants, and we are doing all we can to provide emergency relocation to women who are being targeted.
We're providing our partners with money for travel, fuel, food, medical care, and secure communications technology. Most of our partners are unable to travel abroad, so we are prioritizing an in-country escape and support network for relocation.
