Pakistan Relief & Women’s Empowerment

Summer  floods in Pakistan have destroyed 1.2 million homes, killed at least 1,600 people, left millions more homeless or displaced, and destroyed 14,000 square miles of crops.

In the wake of the continuing disaster the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations and the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) are teaming up to provide targeted relief and support to women and their children in a region of Pakistan where women are strictly segregated from men as well as the outside world.

To read what the Service Committee says, visit www.uusc.org.   You can help the UUSC in supporting its local partner organization on the ground, known as Bedari, which seeks to empower women and get them access to needed medical care, food, and disease-prevention supplies.

To make a tax-deductible contribution to  Pakistan relief or another specific UUSC/UUA humanitarian relief appeal, go to our own www.uuss.org.
