February 2024 Newsletter 

February is a significant month for Heart to Heart International. It marks one year since the devastating earthquake in Türkiye and Syria and two years of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine — two major crises where our teams have tirelessly provided critical aid.

You have made these responses and others possible, and you continue to support people in need after disasters around the world. We cannot do any of our work without you — our incredible partners, supporters and volunteers. Thank you.

Health and Hygiene for Women and Girls in Gaza

The recent escalation in Gaza has ripped lives apart, displacing 1.9 million people – many of them women and children left desperately scrambling for basic necessities. In the face of this overwhelming need, Heart to Heart International is stepping up to bring relief, focusing on a critical but often overlooked issue: dignity and hygiene for women and girls.

We’re delivering 1.7 million menstrual pads – a seemingly simple item with the power to restore a sense of normalcy and self-care when everything else feels lost. We’re also sending soap, toothpaste, and other essential hygiene supplies, offering dignity and health amidst the chaos.

Continuing Support for Displaced Ukrainians

Almost two years since the beginning of the war, thousands of Ukrainians face an uncertain future, displaced from their homes and struggling to meet basic needs. Lost jobs, rising costs, and limited support leave many feeling helpless.

But there’s a glimmer of hope. We have been partnering with dedicated organizations on the ground, providing essential aid and support to families like David’s (pictured left). He lost everything in the war, but support like this helps gives him strength to move forward.
