Support Syrian women and girls!
At refugee camps in Jordan, Syrian families are reeling from the losses they've faced -- the homes they fled, the loved ones they left behind, the lives that will never be the same. And there’s one threat that’s too often forgotten: young refugee girls forced into marriages. Their parents feel like they have no other choice. They hold out hope that their daughters will be cared for in marriage and that a dowry will help keep their family alive. But by selling their daughters, these girls lose the chance at schooling and they risk their lives in bearing children too early.
That’s why CODEPINK and MADRE are partnering with their contacts in the region to help make sure that these women and families have the care and resources they need.
Please be the light in the lives of Syrian women and girls. A small delegation of midwives and activists will be delivering solar lanterns and other vital support to women in the camps early next month--your contribution is urgently needed.
