WHO : Team VERVE London & Welcome Kitchen
WHAT : A Prosecco Think Tank at which we collected funds for WK and raised awareness about the current and future refugee crisis. Specifically how it affects women & children.
WHEN : 31 May 2018
The refugee crisis is one of the most urgent and critical feminist issues facing women and girls today.
¾ of Syrian refugees are women and children.
25,800 unaccompanied/separated/orphaned arrived on Italian shores in 2016.
120 million girls are not in school due to war/conflict.
Due to conflicts worldwide 41 % of young displaced Syrian girls were married off before the age of 18.
10+ thousand child refugees have been reported missing after reaching Europe, and many of them are believed to have fallen victim to trafficking and sexual exploitation.
RECAP : World Refugee Day is June 20th and in an effort to inform ourselves 17 passionate feminists gathered together at VERVE HQ for a discussion on how the refugee crisis has and is affecting women and children world wide.
CALL TO ACTION: After a meaningful conversation - we hope to encourage our community to take the next step and offer a few ideas on how to take words into action with call to action ideas.
