Ending violence against women in Lebanon and Syria
Over 1 million refugees have fled to the Beqaa Valley in Lebanon since the beginning of the war in Syria. More than 80% are women and children. One Million Thumbprints is partnering with a local nonprofit providing basic child and maternal health services to refugee families, including trauma care to mothers and babies from pre-birth to 12 months old.
It is possibly more dangerous to be a woman than a soldier in conflicts today.
