United with women refugees
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to tear across the globe, it has now reached the largest refugee camp in the world: in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, threatening the lives of some of the most vulnerable women and girls.
Adding to this unfolding crisis, Cyclone Amphan recently brought flooding and structural damage, and the monsoon season is quickly approaching.
More than 850,000 Rohingya refugees are living in confined spaces in the camps, where physical distancing is nearly impossible.
UN Women is on the ground working hard to prevent an outbreak, leading a network of 400 refugee women, educating people about how to protect themselves from COVID-19, and providing life-saving information, services and supplies from health care to counselling for survivors of violence. But we urgently need your support to continue this work.
Your donation can help women leaders carry out their vital Covid prevention campaign, and provide health, hygeine equipment and gender-based violence services in UN Women’s Multipurpose Women’s Centres.
