Nafisa gave birth to her son in a displacement camp in Somaliland, with no medical facilities, or even a midwife to help.
Along with tens of thousands of families, she is seeking refuge from the climate-change related drought devastating Somaliland.
And now, communities like hers are facing a catastrophe of immense proportions, as Covid-19 has seen livelihoods destroyed and cases of violence against women skyrocket.
But by donating to ActionAid, you could help us support women and girls around the world:
Right now, millions of women and girls around the world are fighting for their freedom, their futures and even their lives. It's vital that we stand with them. Please donate today.
Women's rights are still in lockdown.
Covid-19 has deepened inequalities for women and girls, and exposed a hidden pandemic of violence and poverty.
But in communities large and small, away from the spotlight, women and girls are leading the change.
With the support of ActionAid and our partners, they are building a new world – one that’s safe and equal. A world in which no woman lives in fear of violence.
ActionAid stands with women. Will you stand with women too?
Stand with women and girls like Nafisa by giving a regular gift.
to help provide a cash transfer for a woman so she can buy life-saving food and medicine
to help provide an essentials kit with underwear, soap, wipes, batteries, comb, a whistle, and a torch
to help provide life-saving training on sanitation and hygiene practices, to prevent fatal diseases from spreading
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.
