Help US Special Operations Forces support women’s health in Syria
In a recent study, the UN estimated that 7.3 million women and girls in Syria need critical health services. Twelve years of bloody conflict, mass displacement, infrastructure collapse, economic devastation, and an ongoing pandemic has made the situation for an already vulnerable group even more dire. With the ever-growing list of critical humanitarian needs in Syria, women’s health is often neglected. With your help, Spirit of America is providing 200 women in the Deir ez-Zor region with a six-month supply of feminine hygiene products and prenatal vitamins.
“This rural area of Northeast Syria is impoverished, with an average income of approximately $2 a day and minimal access to essential services. Here, where women’s hygiene products have been reported to cost up to 20% of the average monthly household income, most women are expected to make do with whatever is on hand. As a result, women in this area are at high risk for infections that can lead to sterility.”
