Chicago Chapter: Get a Mask, Empower Women

Donate $50 to help women disproportionately affected by the pandemic, receive a blue "UN Women mask"!
 
For women in Bangladesh, the pandemic has completely uprooted their lives. Many are migrant workers or individuals who travel outside of their hometowns for work. COVID-19 has also economically displaced these women, making them increasingly vulnerable to stigmatization, health risks, and gender-based violence.
 
Wearing a mask can save lives, and with your donation not only will you receive a mask, but so will thousands of women in hard-hit communities. A portion of your donation will also support programs that provide skills training to women migrant workers in Bangladesh, including skills to produce masks for their community. 
 
When: Now through Dec. 5
