#Standing with Ukraine

Our thoughts go out to the people in Ukraine in these difficult times and join you in praying for peace

Just as we are all preparing for our (virtual) attendance at the 66th session of the Commission on the Status of Women, war has come to the homes of the people of Ukraine and is dominating the lives of millions of people whose only wish is to live a peaceful, safe, healthy, just and sustainable life with adequate food, shelter, education and accessible services.

NAWO is dedicated to advocating particularly for women and girls who so often bear the brunt of the effects of disasters, man-made and natural, and whose participation in decision-making – which may have avoided or mitigated them – is completely absent.
Let us continue our mission, not only for those affected by this conflagration, but for everyone around the world whose potential cannot be realised…

We are one people living together on one planet, dependant on each other and on a healthy environment.
May our work at CSW66 be effective and life-enhancing for all.
