Whether it is a sudden emergency or an ongoing crisis, Rose of Sharon fights to aid people in need around the world.
FOOD & WATER
Hunger and malnutrition remain the leading threats to public health worldwide. 820 million people will go to bed hungry tonight, and 2 billion more don’t know where their next meal is coming from.
The story of global health in the last decades is the story of staggering inequality. Every day, about 830 women die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth.
EDUCATION & WORK
131 million girls around the world are missing out on school, and girls are 50% more likely to lose the opportunity for education than boys. Education and the right to work are the most powerful tools in overcoming extreme poverty.
The scale and the urgency of the global climate crisis demands an augmented effort by Rose of Sharon to promote climate justice to tackle the gendered consequences of climate change and the drivers causing it.
We cannot eradicate poverty and achieve social justice while inequality persists. Discrimination against women has negative implications for global security and development, economic performance, food security, health, climate adaptation and the environment, governance, and stability.
