Ritah from Uganda was pregnant with twins when her husband became violent and beat her.
After a difficult pregnancy, Ritah eventually lost one of her twins.
ActionAid stepped in to provide a lifeline — supporting Ritah with hospital fees and providing grief and trauma counselling.
Ritah is now on the road to recovery. But this Christmas, it’s more important than ever that we stand with women like her.
By donating to ActionAid, you could help us support women and girls around the world with shelters, legal support so that survivors can access justice, counselling, first aid and referrals to medical centres for further treatment.
Please donate today.
Stand with women and girls like Ritah by giving a regular gift.
£10 a month could train a counsellor to provide psychosocial support to survivors of violence
£7 a month could fund a women's shelter, providing safe, comforting temporary accommodation for survivors
£3 a month could provide meals for a fortnight for a girl who's escaped abuse
Every donation counts, and we’re grateful for whatever you feel you can afford. A one-off donation is a fantastic start, but issues that women and girls face, like violence and poverty, are long-term problems, and they need long-term solutions. Regular donations mean we can commit to working with women and girls for as long as it takes.
A monthly gift from you allows us to make ambitious plans, and invest in the futures of young girls and their communities. It means we can make a real, sustainable difference to the lives of women and girls. Please help us to change lives, for good.
For every £1 we spend:
70p is spent on programme activity, including humanitarian and development work
17p is spent on fundraising
10p is spent on support costs (running the organisation)
3p is spent on campaigning for change
These figures are taken from our expenditure in 2018.
We’re committed to keeping our supporters happy and being open and honest about how we fundraise. To find out more you can read our supporter promise.
