Happy International Women's Day 2023

We are excited to share with you our recent events and how SAHF and FUSAL help women in El Salvador with important issues that affect them.
Happy International Women's Day 2023

International Women's Day is a global holiday celebrated annually on March 8th as a day that puts a spotlight on the women's rights movement, bringing attention to issues such as gender equality, reproductive rights, and violence and abuse against women.

While SAHF and FUSAL are focused on improving the overall rights of all Salvadorans, not only women, we definitely put a focus on helping women and creating gender equality in homes.

Recently, FUSAL hosted an event where women from several communities volunteered to help their respective communities by passing on the information that was shared at the event. Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) donated MannaPack Rice Meals, fortified rice, and soy protein meals, which were given to the families who participated in helping with their nutritious needs. Recipes were shared with the group to give them new ways to use the food in their meals.

This event was also done to help women promote gender equality in their homes. They were also taught to encourage men and boys to help with household chores so that women do not have to bare all the responsibilities within their homes.

SAHF and FUSAL continue to help Salvadorans, both men and women, work towards a better life with the help of partners like FMSC, who have helped push progress in Salvadoran society as a whole. However, SAHF and FUSAL also put focus on the importance of bringing attention to women's rights, issues such as gender equality, reproductive rights, and violence and abuse against women. In past years SAHF has helped by bringing access to birth control to women who do not have access to medications or resources with the help of other partners such as Direct Relief. FUSAL promotes access to resources women need if they are experiencing physical abuse.
