The Syrian people are enduring one of the world's worst humanitarian disasters. Women and girls suffer the threat of widespread rape and forced marriages on top of the mass displacement, starvation and armed attacks against millions of civilians. Refugees fleeing their homes for nearby countries struggle to find food, housing, healthcare and other basics.
With your support, MADRE partners with grassroots Syrian women's groups to provide humanitarian aid to refugees and to demand peace and justice for all Syrians.
- Women and families get humanitarian aid that relieves poverty and saves lives.
- Vital reproductive care improves the health of mothers and babies.
- Rape survivors get care and learn to document crimes against women for prosecution.
- Women learn to negotiate sustainable peace agreements that safeguard women's human rights.
Your Support in Action
"One of the worst things about being a refugee is feeling invisible. If something horrible happened to me, no one would know about it. But when we received your help, it changed so much. It told me that someone knows I am here. That someone is worried about me and they want to make sure that I'm OK." - Syrian woman helped by MADRE and our local partners
