Since a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal on April 25th, UN Women has been working to improve communications, safety and health for women and girls. 40,000 women are at risk of sexual and gender-based violence and a second earthquake only exacerbated these concerns. The earthquakes have devastated Nepal..
Nepalese women and girls need solar lanterns, radios and dignity kits to stay healthy, safe and access life-saving information. UN Women is also working to open more Women’s Centres to train and employ women in recovery efforts and provide counselling and referrals to survivors of violence.
Your tax-deductible contribution will support UN Women’s emergency relief and recovery efforts in Nepal, to protect the most vulnerable women and girls.
