Letters of hope

Letters of Hope

Our organisation started with a simple letter-writing campaign, creating a human link between women living under siege or in refugee camps, and the outside world.

I was very happy to receive a letter...I want to tell her, 'Thank you so much for supporting me. I want to help others in the future, the way you have helped me.'

Faith, Women for Women International - Nigeria

Twenty-five years ago in war-torn Bosnia, Women for Women International was set up to provide services and solidarity to women who had experienced the very worst of humanity. We have now gone on to serve hundreds of thousands of marginalised and socially excluded women survivors of war. We are proud to provide them with the tools to help them choose their own future and rebuild their lives.

If we get such love from strangers, who are we not to love ourselves and not to love our neighbours.

One of my friends told me about Women for Women International and how it provided training for women. That’s when I learned that I wasn’t alone in my suffering. There are other women, who have the same pain.
