About the Female Friendly Space
The female-friendly space in the camp was developed in response to the unique challenges that female refugees face when their homes have been destroyed and their communities displaced. Companionship, cultural exchange, and moral support are valuable contributions all female volunteers can provide to women residents. Volunteers with specific skills in social work, health, arts & crafts, yoga, aerobics/zumba, hairdressing, early childhood development, and more are great additions to the team.
