In the wake of the tragedy in Christchurch, EMERGENCY expresses its sympathy for the families of the victims, and to the people of New Zealand.
This is how we celebrate International Women’s Day: by treating women and girls where war has brought destruction, where poverty prevents them from accessing medical treatment, by offering training and work so they can be independent, by fostering respect for human rights and dignity. We’ll talk about it today, but we put it into practice every day.
Happy International Women’s Day to all who fight for a better future. For everyone.
