Concern for Women and Children at Turkish Border

Statement by Sarah Costa, Executive Director

We are particularly concerned for the refugee women and children currently on the Turkish border and are hopeful that they will be able to leave the violence of Syria soon. Again, we renew our call for the humanitarian response in Turkey to consider the needs of women and girls and to take the necessary steps to mitigate and respond to the higher incidences of violence that befall them in such chaotic situations.
