65 million people are considered refugees and an untold number are Internally Displaced Persons. Of these, the overwhelming majority, according to the European Commission, are women and children. Women, especially those of childbearing age, are overwhelmingly more vulnerable to sexual/reproductive violence, not only from armed actors or military personnel, but from community members, or intimate partners. When most survivors become pregnant and seek maternity care, they are faced with fragmented services and a system which does not integrate extreme psychological trauma with reproductive health care. Global Motherhood Initiative fills this gap. We provide gentle, comprehensive maternity care combined with mental health therapies for deep trauma. We provide a space for the women to heal, and to take their lives back. We work in Iraqi Kurdistan with the Yazidi population, victims of the 2014 genocide by ISIS. We are devotd to the care and healing, physically, emotionally and mentally. Global Motherhood Initiative is sponsored by Mother Health International, Inc.
