The Alliance is pleased to two welcome two new members: Bent Al-Rafedain and IsraAid.
Bent Al-Rafedain is an integrated society based on the principles of equal opportunity, justice and equality through the active and competent participation of women in all areas. Iraqi women and their endeavours are the core concern of Bent al-Rafedain. The organisation provides an open and free space for women to express their opinions without any pressure or restrictions and offers Iraqi women the opportunity to develop their capacities in the social, cultural and political fields. Bent Al-Rafedain encourages women's participation in development programmes, supports their rights and strives to alleviate the pressures they face as part of the process of reform and democratic transition to a free civil society that seeks a decent life.
