Voice for Voiceless (VV) is a Community based group from ‘Friends of Humanity’, which organises all types of women to voice for the voiceless. We want to empower women to take action in the elimination of suffering of all women and children. The project grew from the ethical persecution of Rohingya Musilms, in Naymar (Burma). We felt we had to take action as global citizens, to help support the vulnerable and try to look for peace, in areas of conflict around the globe.
The project wants to raise awareness in matters affecting women, children and the vulnerable in areas of conflict. We will be workings towards eliminating the suffering of these women and children across the globe.
Aims and Objectives:
Creating Champions for peace within our community and in areas of conflict
Empowering survivours of various abuses
Raise Awareness of suffering and needs in areas of conflict
Raising funds to support women and children in refugee camps
Visiting and documenting areas of conflict
Creating campaigns and petitions
Work and Engagement
Fellow members have visited and supported Syrian refugee camps in Turkey and Lebanon, with the WCF. It was an eye opening trip seeing the suffering of innocent individuals.
The group has raised over £10 000, to contribute towards the wellbeing of refugees and an orphanage in Coxes Bazar, Bangladesh.
We have participated in many conferences and seminars promoting our causes and learnt good practises from other organisations.
We are following many various International organisations, regarding repatriation of the unfortunate 700,000 Rohingya Muslims back to Rakhine state. The group is in regular contact with the UNHCR – United Nation High Commission for Refugees. There are 68.6 million refugees in the world displaced internally and externally and UNHCR have an exclusive excess to this due to its UN mandate. We are looking at becoming a member with UNHCR, for the wider benefits and access.
A pilot project has been discussed with our partner group to explore people’s awareness in the camps and how to prevent it.
