Deeply concerned and shocked, the focus women team is following the escalation of violence in Israel and in the Gaza Strip. We condemn the bloody Hamas attack on Israeli civilians as well as the violence perpetrated by the Israeli armed forces that affects Palestinian civilians and the blockade of Gaza in the strongest possible terms. We demand that all parties to the conflict comply with international law and respect human rights. Parties in conflict as well as the international community must do everything possible to finally achieve lasting peace in the region.


In this extremely difficult situation, our partners working in the war zone can absolutely continue to count on our full support.

focus women believes in the potential of women as forces of change. All around the world, women experience the impact of violence, discrimination and poverty to varying degrees. Women are aware of how vulnerable our planet and how fragile society is. They create new perspectives over and over again, and commit themselves to bringing about changes.

focus women supports women's organizations and networks in the global South and Eastern Europe. With them, the Foundation put into practice projects for women by women. 

 

We won't get rich, but we can eat and sell vegetables, send the children to school, pay for medicine or even buy some things for the household.
