CHW Toronto Dor L'Dor Chapter will be walking together in support of victims of domestic violence on Tuesday, May 24, 2022. All of the proceeds raised will go towards CHW's S.O.S: Starting Over Safely summer campaign.
CHW passionately supports programs and services for Children, Healthcare, and Women in Israel and Canada. We strongly believe that every human being deserves to achieve their full potential, while living in safety and security.
Globally, 1 in 3 women experience physical or sexual violence by a partner. In Israel, an estimated 200,000 women are currently living with violence and fear. A recent survey shows that only 30% of women know where to turn to for help. This is a dangerous worldwide trend and has been coined The Shadow Pandemic by the UN. The number of domestic violence complaints in Israel has increased by 800% since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
True to its mission, CHW is leading the way to empower women by stepping up emergency support and services at this critical time.
Canadian Hadassah-WIZO (CHW) is a non-political, non-partisan national network of dedicated volunteers and professionals who strongly believe that the advancement of childcare, education, healthcare, and women’s issues transcends politics, religion and national boundaries.
