Women's Safety and Wellness Kits
Survival tools for women
Refugees arrive in places like Kenya’s massive Dadaab camp with nothing. They’re thrown into close quarters with tens of thousands of others; privacy ceases to exist. Women are especially vulnerable to harm, including sexual assault. We provide them with critical, even lifesaving supplies: clothing and sandals; a bucket, soap and other toiletries; and a flashlight and whistle to call for help. $80 can provide clothing and safety kits for four women who have lost everything in a crisis.
Give a Rescue Gift now and your gift to the IRC will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $1 million by generous friends of the IRC. Through Dec. 31, 2013.
Why they’ll Love a Rescue Gift
“Educating girls in underdeveloped countries is really important to both my mother and me, so I gave my mom a Rescue Gift. She said it was the best gift she’d ever gotten.”
