International Women’s Day March 8

International Women’s Day has been celebrated worldwide on March 8 since 1921. On this day, the YOU Foundation, reminds you that this year’s theme is “#EmbraceEquityto reflect the topic of equitable justice between women and men. In many places there are demonstrations demanding equal wages for women.

Elimination of inequalities and injustices, and equality between men and women underlie the idea of “Women’s Day.” Much has been achieved by activists over the decades, women’s right to vote being at the forefront. Nevertheless, women and girls around the world continue to be disadvantaged and dependent in many areas of life, and in many countries are severely oppressed or even enslaved.

Even schooling and education are often denied to girls. They are often unable to achieve a living income of their own.   learn more

Ukraine is burning…

We are stunned by the aggression…

but we are not speechless, we say„WE HELP!“

Olga und ihr zweijähriger Sohn Oskar in Chisinau in Moldawien: “Wir packten einen kleinen Koffer mit unseren Dokumenten und Habseligkeiten und gingen.”

Eleven-year-old Oskar from Kyiv came to a refugee camp in the Moldovan city of Chisinau with his mother and grandmother. He and the other children are very scared, he doesn’t want to hear anything about the war. 

The Republic of Moldova / Moldova is one of the first contact points for war refugees from Ukraine and has already received over 100,000 traumatized women and children in the last few days.

Despite being one of the poorest countries in Europe, President Maia Sandu opened Moldova’s borders and its residents their hearts. The poor farmers on the border, who can hardly make ends meet themselves, provided the refugees with basic food. In addition, the government, together with the residents of Moldova, immediately initiated the construction of provisional reception camps in Palanca and Ocnița.

As a non-profit organization, we have been supporting the people of Moldova for over 10 years. Especially in unbelievable situations like these, we MUST stand together in solidarity and support our fellow European citizens!
Drinking water, shelter, food, hygiene items, medical aid and heating material are most urgently needed!

Please HELP us to HELP!
