Protecting vulnerable women in India
Women in India are very vulnerable. Rates of rape and abuse are staggeringly high. For many village women, the most vulnerable time is in the early morning when they have to go to nearby fields as so many villages lack toilet facilities. Many have been raped or kidnapped at this time. We have been raising money to build secure toilets in some villages where our partners have already provided water pumps. For about £700 we can provide strongly built toilets that will greatly enhance the safety of many women, and improve village hygiene .
At the end of February, we sent enough funds to India to build two blocks. We have nearly enough to pay for two more when we next send funds out in May. It would be great to be able to make that three more. If you would like to help us with this, you can donate in a number of different ways. Click Donate above to find out how.
