Celebrating Women's Day in the West Bank

On the occasion of International Women's Day, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) organized a number of activities to support Palestinian women living under harsh conditions, especially those most affected by the armed conflict.

In the West Bank, and in close cooperation with the Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS), the ICRC organized workshops in marginalized rural areas, by providing training on health and domestic issues, such as first aid and health awareness. In addition to the ICRC's initiatives, the Palestinian Civil Defense Department coordinated training on domestic issues. These activities were conducted in Bethlehem, Jericho, Tubas and Nablus.

This isolated Bedouin community is located in a closed military area, and suffers from poor access to different services, including medical care.
