Emergency Response

UN Women established a Women and Girls Oasis Centre at the Za’atari Camp in Jordan for Syrian Refugees to provide protection and gender-based violence services (e.g. psychosocial support, education, and recreation activities). They also provide training in trade and cash for work programmes to support women economic independence. In Palestine, UN Women support women’s organisations through workshops and dialogues to support humanitarian coordination and planning.
