It is always the innocent, women and children, who are the real victims of war.

There are almost fifty million refugees and displaced persons throughout the world. Eighty percent of refugees are women and children.

Fleeing terror and persecution, losing their homes, their land, their loved ones, it is women who bind their families together with the slender threads of hope. 

Hope that they will survive and rebuild their lives. The strength demonstrated by refugee women is awe inspiring and deserves greater recognition. WomenAid International is proud to work alongside such women and invites you to add your support.

During the past few years, through the support of thousands of generous people, the European Community Humanitarian Office, (ECHO), the British Overseas Development Administration, and several UN agencies, WomenAid International has been able to deliver over 30,000 tonnes of food, medicines, medical supplies and equipment as well as hygienic supplies to more than 1.5 million vulnerable people in countries ravaged by war and suffering the effects of economic dislocation.

WomenAid has an unfinished agenda as long as women and their families are facing a crisis, are         crushed by poverty, are vulnerable and are in need.
