Standing up for
women and girls
in Sudan and Gaza

DELIVERING LIFESAVING CARE, TOGETHER

Janelle Monáe is proud to partner with UNFPA to deliver urgently needed contraceptives, pregnancy care, gender-violence support and other essential health services in Gaza and Sudan – two regions where conflict has eroded access to hospitals and safe spaces for women and girls.
  • In Gaza, hospitals have been devastated and medicines depleted, leaving 1.34 million women and girls desperately lacking access to health care, period products and protections against violence.
  • In Sudan, 1.6 million women and girls have been forced out of their homes, leaving them more exposed to violence. More than 54,000 of these women are due to give birth in the next three months.
UNFPA is on the ground, bridging gaps in care for women and girls. Across the two crises, we’ve reached hundreds of thousands of people with reproductive health support. Our interventions are simple and scalable, but funding is urgently needed to ensure no woman or girl in Gaza or Sudan is left behind.
With your partnership we can get more medical supplies, mobile health clinics, period products, and women-focused emergency response programs to the people who need them most.  
Together, we can save lives – thank you for your support.

WHAT WE DO

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. 

 

USA for UNFPA condemns the violence in Gaza, the West Bank, and Israel and echo the UN Secretary-General’s call for an immediate ceasefire, the release of all hostages by Hamas, and rapid and unimpeded humanitarian access.   
 
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!
