How to Help RAWA
As a feminist organisation struggling for freedom, democracy and women’s right with a clear anti-fundamentalist stand, RAWA has been deprived support from governments, the UN and NGOs.
As a result RAWA rely heavily on individual donations that they recieve from supporters around the world and are extremely grateful for any help you can give.
