Welcome to the launch of the Women's Refugee Commission Blog
Many of you are familiar with our organization, and with the work we do. But for those of you who are not, the Women’s Refugee Commission was founded over 20 years ago as an expert resource and advocacy organization that monitors the care and protection of refugee women, children and young people. We draw attention to the needs of refugee women and children—especially those that are overlooked by humanitarian aid organizations worldwide.
Today, we continue to advocate vigorously for laws, policies and programs that improve the lives and protect the rights of refugee and internally displaced women, children and young people.
We look forward to sharing our work with you and encourage your questions and comments. In future posts, we will talk more in depth about our various programs and the findings we uncover through our work and research. Your interest and support truly can impact the lives of refugee women, children and young people around the world. Together we are working to ensure that they are safe, healthy and self-reliant.
Please watch this message about the Women’s Refugee Commission’s work from our Executive Director, Carolyn Makinson.
Thank you for joining us in this ongoing conversation!
