Be there for every woman and girl, no matter what

Let’s Come Together for
Women and Girls in Crisis

My heart goes out to those who are experiencing devastating losses as a result of the recent earthquake in Syria and Türkiye.  Among the millions of people who have been affected: tens of thousands of pregnant women who need access to maternal health care services.
Periods, pregnancy, and childbirth don’t stop when emergencies occur. UNFPA is on the ground in the affected areas working with local partners and scaling up services. Mobile health teams have been deployed providing reproductive health services to survivors and distributing dignity kits, containing necessary basic supplies including menstrual hygiene products and warm clothing.
I hope you join me ensuring women and girls can access lifesaving reproductive and maternal health services, no matter what. Together, we can act now to deliver lifesaving care to where it is needed most.
As a former nurse, I understand the nuances of women’s health; both emotional and physical health. Access to some simple things can make such a difference, and if the funds are there and interventions are there, a world of difference can be made. 
As a member of the Board of USA for UNFPA, I know that our community, with UNFPA, is ensuring the health, dignity, and protection of women and girls around the world and whenever a humanitarian crisis begins.  With your support, we can scale up urgently needed contraceptive supply provisions, train more midwives to ensure safe births, and create safe spaces for women in volatile situations. 
Together, we are formidable force. We can fill the deadly gaps in care for women that arise during conflict and crisis.  Thank you for joining me and for your generous support!

We believe that women’s rights are human rights – and we are working hard to ensure that they are protected as such. Here are our areas of work: 
Empowering Women to Plan Their Pregnancies 
Worldwide half of all pregnancies are unintended. That’s why we’re distributing critical family planning services – contraception, counseling services, comprehensive reproductive health care, and more – throughout the world.  
In 2021 alone, we helped prevent 12.7 million unintended pregnancies through our services.  
Keeping Motherhood Safe
Every two minutes a woman dies during pregnancy or childbirth from a cause that could be prevented. Every day, this amounts to over 800 needless deaths. That’s why we’re working around the world to ensure that women have the care they need to survive pregnancy and childbirth – especially in areas torn apart by conflict.  
In 2021 alone, we helped to deliver 1.5 million babies in fragile settings and prevented 39,000 maternal deaths through UNFPA-supplied contraception.
Protecting Women and Girls 
Globally, 1 in 3 women have experienced violence, including harmful practices like child marriage and female genital mutilation. Survivors of violence can suffer sexual and reproductive health consequences, including unintended pregnancies, unsafe abortions, traumatic fistula, sexually transmitted infections including HIV, and even death. And all too often violence is tolerated or carried out by the people a woman loves and trusts most: her partner or her family. 
We advocate for policies that protect women’s health and rights and further gender equality – and we support survivors of violence with medical care, legal aid, mental health counseling, and safe housing. 
Delivering care in Emergencies 
When crisis strikes, women and girls are among the MOST vulnerable. We work closely with local communities to ensure that the reproductive health of women and girls is sustained during emergency responses.
We help deliver menstrual hygiene supplies, provide safe delivery and family planning services, and deploy trained personnel to support women and girls during  vulnerable times. 
Give with Confidence to USA for UNFPA 
Every dollar you give is used efficiently to provide lifesaving support for women and girls. Any amount helps and your kindness truly makes a difference. 
We receive 4 out of 4 stars from Charity Navigator for accountability and transparency!
