Mission Statement

MADRE is an international women's human rights organization that works in partnership with community-based women's organizations worldwide to address issues of health and reproductive rights, economic development, education, and other human rights. MADRE provides resources, training, and support to enable our sister organizations to meet concrete needs in their communities while working to shift the balance of power to promote long-term development and social justice. Since we began in 1983, MADRE has delivered over 22 million dollars worth of support to community-based women's organizations in Latin America, the Caribbean, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, the Balkans and the United States.

Description

Helping Hands: Addressing Immediate Needs of Women and Families in Latin America, the Caribbean, and Africa

MADRE's Helping Hands Campaign provides basic material necessities to women and their families in Latin America, the Caribbean, and Africa, so that they can face the immediate crises in their communities. Grounded in the concrete work of collecting school supplies, medical equipment, and health and hygiene supplies, Helping Hands also offers ways for people in the US to think about their own lives in a political context and to join together to demand alternatives to destructive policies.
