Just a few weeks ago, you seized the chance to have your gift doubled through a special matching gift opportunity. Not only have you helped us start the New Year strong, but your generosity is already making twice the impact for women worldwide!
Recently, we received a call from our partner in from Nicaragua, Rose Cunningham. Many women in Rose's rural community face violent danger in their own homes. But with your support, they have a haven. Our partners reach out to women at risk, guiding them to safety at a local shelter and shielding them from harm.
But it can be hard to reach women living in remote villages, hours away by boat or on foot. On the phone, Rose said that soon she'll be able to help more women than ever before. She's launching her rural, Indigenous community's first women's rights radio station!
With your support, Rose has already found a supplier and is ready to buy radio station equipment. This radio station will provide women facing domestic violence with lifesaving information to connect with a nearby shelter that you support.
Your generous gift, doubled in value, will soon do even more to help MADRE and our grassroots partners to:
Deliver food packages and other emergency aid to hundreds of Iraqi families under siege from violent extremists and out of reach of big aid agencies.
Train Indigenous women in Kenya to confront the impacts of climate change by conserving resources and building a tree nursery.
Provide trauma counseling and art therapy to former girl child soldiers in Colombia.
Educate and feed Syrian refugee girls at a school for displaced children, and so much more.
Thank you for making all this and so much more possible! We couldn’t do it without you. We are so grateful to have you as an ally in this work.
