WHERE WE WORK
We are a passionate and experienced team serving a range of beneficiaries including marginalized youths and women from undeserved rural communities, war affected areas, refugee camps and slums.
OUR GRASSROOT STORIES
Women refugees carry a burden of protecting their families in hardships. As primary caregivers, they are also at risk of gender-based violence. This happens not only as they flee conflicts, but also on arrival in camps.
Palorinya settlement with its poor health infrastructures has over 180,000 refugees, in addition to risks of maternal/childbirth deaths & malnutrition cases among others, e.g during our beneficiary research one woman said long distances to health centers with unavailability of ambulances prevent refugees from seeking professional treatment.
