With a small business start-up grant from UNHCR, Qasiemah was able to repair and re-open her clothes shop in Al-Hamidiya district of the Old City of Homs, #Syria.
The grant is for small businesses and is a way of supporting vulnerable people, especially #women, within local communities. Since the start of the #SyriaCrisis over 4300 displaced Syrians benefited from small business startup grant.
There are 6.7 million Syrian women and girls in need of humanitarian assistance, facing huge risks when forced to flee their homes or living in vulnerable conditions.
The 8th of March marks #InternationalWomenDay and we reiterate our commitment to #protect and #empower women and girls in need of our help across Syria.
