With your gift today, UN Women can:
Set up and run Women and Girls “Oasis Centres” within select shelters and resettlement areas. These centres provide essential protection and support for women affected by Hurricane Matthew, including: psychological support, education, trades training and cash-for-work programmes. Your gift of $100 will support an Oasis Centre for a day.
Empower women to be leaders in rebuilding and recovery. By supporting Haitian women’s organizations, we can ensure that their voices are heard at the highest levels in humanitarian coordination and planning.
Provide advocacy and technical guidance so that everyone working to help those affected in Haiti have a clear picture of the specific needs of women and girls. In this way we make sure that your contribution, and all dollars raised in relief for Haiti, truly deliver results for women and girls.
