Support Women in Emergencies
When crisis occurs, people’s lives change in an instant. Death, injury, displacement, and the destruction of infrastructure and institutions affect entire communities as a result.
When fleeing from war or escaping disaster, there is little time to think of taking anything but the clothes on your back. Too often, in the wake of crisis, the unique needs of women and girls are ignored or simply forgotten in response efforts and women and girls are left without the basics.
Women’s rights must be protected in times of emergency.
UN Women works to ensure that when crisis hits, women and girls have the essentials they need by providing dignity kits, which include sanitary pads, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, underwear to restore their sense of dignity and a torch to help keep them safe.
Just $20 can provide a dignity kit for a woman or girl in a crisis.
Please show your support and give now.
All donations over $2 are fully tax-deductible.
*The kit pictured is a representation of what is included in a basic dignity kit. Kits on the ground will vary in contents and cost based on the specific emergency and the unique needs of women and girls in the country.
**If more funds are raised than needed specifically for dignity kits, they will be redirected to other necessities required in emergency response.
