Malteser International Americas and The Permanent Observer of the Sovereign Order of Malta are hosting a panel centered on helping women to find hope and opportunity in refugee camps.

The panel entitled, “Women Caught in the Global Refugee Crisis: Finding Hope and Opportunity in Despair” will take place on March 21, 2017 at the Ex-Press Bar at the United Nations (UN) (3rd Flr. NW corner of the UN General Assembly Building), and is scheduled during the UN 61st Session of the Commission on the Status of Women.

Global humanitarian leaders will offer a hard look into the world of female refugees, present their experience empowering refugee women, and share their global relief efforts and solutions, which lead to opportunity and hope for women in countries most challenged with refugees and internally displaced people (IDP).

The panel is open to public, and interested attendees must RSVP ASAP, or by March 17th, and include their full name, contact information, and confirmation of attendance in an email. Registration/sign-up for this event is required due to limited seating capacity.
