Nuestro trabajo en Oriente Próximo

Female refugees and residents in Palestine, Lebanon and Jordan have difficulties accessing even the most basic social services like health care in times of conflict. Culture and religions play a huge role in the patriarchal system that continues to discriminate against women, making them more vulnerable to poverty and exclusion from development. Women in these areas are also subject to high levels of gender violence.

WHAT DO WE WANT TO CHANGE?

The is discriminatory,especially in family law, which weakens the power of the institutions created from international treaties to ensure women´s rights.

The vast majority of women are socially and economically dependent- which limits their autonomy, decisiveness and ability to exercise their economic rights.

Women also experience violations in their sexual and reproductive rights. A large majority of women can not decide on their sexual relationships, marriage, motherhood, and number of children. Also, many do not have access to prenatal care, care during labor and postpartum care.

The is deeply rooted in society.And despite legislative progress, the reality is that women who suffer domestic violence are pressured against reporting it.

Además, la vida de los más de 600.000 refugiado/as sirios/as en Jordania empeora a medida que desaparecen sus ahorros y disminuye la ayuda internacional. Especialmente, las mujeres refugiadas sufren una mayor vulnerabilidad por la discriminación y el limitado reconocimiento de su autonomía y de sus propios derechos.

WE ARE WORKING ON:

  • Asistencia médica y humanitaria a refugiadas sirias

Se proporciona atención médica y psicosocial a las refugiadas sirias en una clínica en la localidad de Mádaba, al sur de Amman, y próximamente estaremos presentes también en las localidades de Jerash y Ajlun. En esas clínicas, no sólo reciben atención sanitaria, sino que además se organizan talleres sobre prevención de la violencia de género, planificación familiar o sobre las consecuencias de los matrimonios precoces que truncan la vida de muchas niñas.

In addition, is provided to these women and their families baskets of food, hygiene products and necessities to combat the situation of serious vulnerability suffered by 86% of Syrian refugees in Jordan, which are found below the threshold of poverty.

  • Sexual and reproductive rights

We work to ensure the sexual and reproductive rights of women through awareness campaigns and workshops on health education. We are also working to improve health service centers specializing in sexual-reproductive care, such as mammograms or Pap smears.

  • Gender Violence

We work with local partners to create protocols of action in cases of violence against women and to improve the quality of care for victims. Furthermore, we are conducting studies and awareness campaigns to question current gender roles.

  • Change family law

We promote the networking and support of women's organizations so that they can demand legal changes necessary for a real recognition of women´s rights in the region, as in the case of the laws governing ¨honor crimes¨.

Men participate in training and education to promote shared responsibility in sexual, reproductive and family care issues.

WHO DO WE WORK WITH?

In each country, Alliance for Solidarity works in partnership with the local civil society, governments and beneficiaries. Alliance for Solidarity´s involvement is critical to the current success and continuity of the actions in the future.
