UGANDA :: Helping exploited women and girls

The Red Thread Promise recently began a partnership with Refuge and Hope International to assist refugee women and girls who are experiencing violence and exploitation in Uganda. Refuge and Hope is developing a new program in Kampala to holistically assist these female refugees by:
  • providing temporary safe shelter 
  • offering education and vocational training
  • conducting community self-help groups
Our support provides full physical and gynecological exams, lab tests and medications for medical issues that arise from these horrid circumstances.

Together we will rebuild lives following such profound abuse and restore dignity to these women and girls.
