Help to provide urgent relief to women and girls impacted by the hurricanes in the Caribbean.
If you’ve been watching the news, you’ve seen the devastation and suffering that multiple consecutive disasters in the form of several hurricanes have caused across the Caribbean, all in one month. In the aftermath of disasters, women and girls are disproportionately exposed to risk, increased loss of livelihoods, security and even lives, due to existing gender inequalities.
With your gift today, you can support UN Women’s response.
Your support will ensure that relief efforts, through the provision of emergency supplies and long-term support for recovery, meet the needs of women and girls.
With your support, we will also ensure that the central role that women play in the survival and resilience of families and communities, is recognized. In the Caribbean, women remain the predominant heads of households, and women-headed households are often the most vulnerable and deprived in the region
In the immediate response, your donation will support the distribution of dignity kits containing basic health and hygiene products for displaced women and girls, such as soap, underwear and sanitary napkins.
Support protection efforts to ensure these women and girls remain safe and that violence against women is prevented and effectively addressed in the context of emergency.
Increase visibility for recognizing the leadership of women in emergencies and their contribution to the recovery and the resilience in their families and communities.
In the longer term, with your support, UN Women will provide continuing technical expertise and financial support for economic initiatives to ensure that women have access to resources to get themselves and their families back on their feet, and to address safety and security concerns.
Act today. Help bring dignity and hope to women and girls in the Caribbean who are caught in the hurricanes’ destructive paths.
