Help Protect Women from Sexual Assault & Gender Violence in Haiti


Three weeks after the earthquake hit Haiti, there is an urgent need to ensure that women and girls receive adequate protection and are involved in rebuilding Haiti.

We have a new champion for this cause - the out-going Chilean President Michelle Bachelet will be working with UNIFEM to advocate for the needs of Haitian women. Currently, UNIFEM is working to rebuild women's shelters and provide services to victims of gender-based violence in Port-au-Prince and Jacmel. You can help by saying NO to violence against women and girls in Haiti.

To Say NO to violence and to keep women and girls safe in Haiti:

  * Donate to rebuild shelters and expand services to women and girls in Haiti

  * Download the special Haiti Desktop Calendar and share it with people you know

Thank you for your support.
