Earthquake Response: Recommendations Regarding Funding Syrian Women’s Organisations

On February 6th, the strongest earthquake in the region in a century struck north-west Syria and south-east Turkey. The humanitarian crisis is immense.

In all kinds of crises, women’s organisations and women human rights defenders quickly organise to support their communities and act as first responders. They tend to fill in the gaps of humanitarian agencies and reach vulnerable groups that are left out. They need urgent support to continue their work.

This policy brief focuses on the situation in Syria and outlines recommendations to the international community on who to fund, what to fund and how to fund to ensure a gendered and inclusive response to the crisis.
