International Rescue Committee UK

We respond to the world’s worst crises to help people survive &rebuild their lives

Story

£5 provides a parenting skills course for stressed parents dealing with displacement

£10 provides a dignity kit for women

£40 will pay for an adolescent girl's 12 week course to give her life skills and how to protect from harm

£50 pays for lifesaving support for survivors of the conflict to access healthcare and shelter to heal and recover. 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Our fundraising will help Syrian refugee women and girls at three safe spaces in Jordan at Irbid, Ramtha and Mafraq. The women's centres provide counselling against gender based violence, healthcare, education and recreational healing activities.

The International Rescue Committee provide assistance to people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster around the world.  More than 60 million people are displaced worldwide, more than half are women and children.  The IRC specialise in women's protection and empowerment and child protection.
