Update #3: We're on the ground helping people affected by Matthew
October 24, 2016
EVENT: Hurricane Matthew Relief
100% of your donation will be sent directly to our local partner Haiti Projects, to help with the immediate needs for women and girls resulting in displacement from Hurricane Matthew. Following disasters, the women and girls we work with in Haiti struggle to find clean water for washing, private places for changing, and tending to feminine menstruation. When girls and women cannot equally and effectively be involved in their community, particularly when recovering from a crisis, pre-existing education and gender disparities become magnified and their ability to contribute to the economic viability of their families and recovery from disaster is hindered. Mahila Partnership has been addressing the most pressing unmet needs of women and girls following disasters since 2007.
