Women on the Climate Frontline

Bangladesh is under threat from the global climate crisis. Women facing poverty, violence and inequality in the slums now live with a cycle of cyclones and extreme flooding that is worse than ever … How do they survive?

The British Red Cross campaign, It Starts With Her, is helping women in Barishal to learn new skills, improve their lives and make their communities more resilient to disasters. Through UK Aid Match, every pound you give to the British Red Cross up to the value of £2m will be doubled by the UK government. With your help, they can support thousands of strong women – and, as a result, their communities – to be even stronger. To donate, visit donate.redcross.org.uk
