International Medical Corps and Conrad N. Hilton Foundation Launch The Things We Carry Campaign, Highlighting Plight of Syrian Refugees

LOS ANGELES, March 7, 2017 /360WiseNews/ — In an effort to keep public attention on the ongoing needs of millions of Syrian refugees, International Medical Corps and the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation are launching The Things We Carry, a campaign featuring the children, men and women who have fled six years of war in their country – and what they carried with them to safety.

The campaign, which will roll out across media platforms, includes an interactive tool for viewers to choose what they would carry with them if they were suddenly forced from their homes – and to explore the stories of twelve Syrians who faced that agonizing choice.

“While this war has been grinding on for nearly six years, and global attention has ebbed and flowed in that time, the Syrian people continue to endure tremendous suffering, and we must not forget them,” said Rebecca Milner, Vice President of Institutional Advancement for International Medical Corps. “Our goal with this campaign is to help people imagine what it’s like to have to flee your home at a moment’s notice, to save your life or that of your family – and to be able to take only one thing with you. What would that one thing be? For these refugees, leaving their homes and everything they know is not a choice, but a matter of life and death.”

“While the suffering of Syrian refugees continues, international humanitarian response increasingly falls short of what is needed to address their growing needs,” said Shaheen Kassim-Lakha, Director of International Programs for the Hilton Foundation.  “With millions of refugees rapidly turning into a lost generation, it is vital to develop innovative communications campaigns such as this to bring more attention to the crisis.”

International Medical Corps operates in Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey, delivering lifesaving medical relief and training programs aimed at helping people recover, rebuild and become their own best first responders.  The Hilton Foundation has been supporting International Medical Corps’ programs for Syrian refugees in Turkey since 2013.

To participate in the campaign, visit The Things We Carry social media toolkit.

Since its inception 30 years ago, International Medical Corps‘ mission has been consistent: relieve the suffering of those impacted by war, natural disaster, and disease by delivering vital health care services that focus on training. This approach of helping people help themselves is critical to returning devastated populations to self-reliance. For more information visit: www.InternationalMedicalCorps.org. Also visit us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.

The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation was created in 1944 by international business pioneer Conrad N. Hilton, who founded Hilton Hotels and left his fortune to help the world’s disadvantaged and vulnerable people. The Foundation currently conducts strategic initiatives in six priority areas: providing safe water, ending chronic homelessness, preventing substance use, helping young children affected by HIV and AIDS, supporting transition-age youth in foster care, and extending Conrad Hilton’s support for the work of Catholic Sisters. In addition, following selection by an independent international jury, the Foundation annually awards the $2 million Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize to a nonprofit organization doing extraordinary work to alleviate human suffering. In 2016, the Humanitarian Prize was awarded to The Task Force for Global Health, an international, nonprofit organization that works to improve health of people most in need, primarily in developing countries. From its inception, the Foundation has awarded more than $1.5 billion in grants, distributing $109 million in the U.S. and around the world in 2016. The Foundation’s current assets are approximately $2.6 billion. For more information, please visit www.hiltonfoundation.org.

– Avon proudly supports International Women’s Day and its campaign for #BeBoldForChange by taking bold action against domestic violence

– The Avon Foundation for Women awards its single largest donation of nearly £2 million for female victims of gender-based violence

– Avon to release new research into domestic violence [at Somerset House, London]

LONDON, March 6, 2017 /360WiseNews/ — The Avon Foundation for Women, the world’s largest corporate-affiliated philanthropy focused on issues that matter most to women, has today pledged its largest single donation, nearly £2 million, for female victims of gender-based violence.  £1 million of these funds will be granted across four countries, Argentina, Romania, South Africa and the UK, to help front-line domestic violence services.

In addition,  a nearly £1 million grant to Vital Voices Global Partnership will support The Justice Institute on Gender-Based Violence, an innovative training program which aims to facilitate effective coordinated criminal justice responses to addressing violence against women in countries around the world. This donation forms part of Avon’s commitment to ending domestic violence and supporting survivors worldwide, and marks the launch of a new global Avon campaign focused on a range of issues of importance to women over the coming years.

Combating global domestic violence
As an official partner of International Women’s Day, Avon is committed to speaking out against domestic violence and supporting the #BeBoldForChange global initiative. In the UK Avon has joined forces with Refuge, the UK charity committed to a world where domestic violence is not tolerated. Together Avon and Refuge have carried out an in-depth study that looks at a recently recognised area of coercive control, particularly impacting women aged 16 – 21, and the findings will form the basis of a new campaign to shift the dial on this type of abuse.

Globally, Avon has been addressing the social issues that matter most to women for over 130 years.  The new UK research reflects wider insights gathered across other countries in which Avon is active. In Brazil, a recent study found that 42% of university students feared being the victim of violence in an academic environment. In Romania, new insights found that young adults struggle to find healthy relationship role models, and two thirds of teenagers said they had witnessed a physical or verbal violent episode between a couple.

[The new research will be shared with an influential audience made up of global experts and stakeholders working to combat domestic violence at an event at Somerset House in London on Monday 6 March.  The event and adjoining exhibition celebrates the collective efforts of Avon, its Representatives, partners, associates, consumers, and supporters around the world that continue to fundraise and raise critical awareness for its causes.]

Funding commitments
Since Avon was founded more than 130 years ago, the company has been breaking barriers and empowering women by offering a path to financial independence and improved health and safety.   This year’s International Women’s Day focuses on the #BeBoldForChange initiative, and as part of this, Avon Foundation for Women’s global commitment includes:

  • The Avon Foundation’s grant of £1 million for front-line services in the UK, South Africa, Romania and Argentina*. In the UK, this includes a grant of £250,000 to Refuge** to support its front-line services, which will fund the equivalent of over 4,800 nights in a refuge for a woman and her children.
  • Globally, nearly £1 million in new funding will expand The Justice Institute on Gender-Based Violence, an innovative training program within Voices Against Violence – a public-private partnership between Vital Voices Global Partnership, the U.S. Department of State, and the Avon Foundation for Women – which aims to facilitate effective, coordinated criminal justice responses to addressing violence against women in countries around the world.
  • The Justice Institute is a ground-breaking initiative which convenes judges, court officers, prosecutors, law enforcement officers, representatives of government agencies and non-governmental service providers with the aim of making the laws keep their promise. Through its multi-disciplinary training style, the Institute fosters collaboration between allied professionals and seeks to improve both victim protection efforts and criminal justice responses to violence against women around the world.
  • To date, the Avon Foundation has invested more than £2 million to launch and convene 10 Justice Institutes in eight countries including Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, India, Mexico, Nepal, Philippines and South Africa.
