  • In Northern Iraq young girls are being sold into sexual slavery by Islamic State.
  • In Papua New Guinea, girls and woman are the victims of sorcery-related attacks.
  • In El Salvador, women are being jailed for up to forty years for having a miscarriage.
Their stories are not unique. And neither are the repeated failures of the people and institutions that should be protecting them. Where they have failed, we can help. With your support, we’ll be able to continue our investigation into the war crimes of the Islamic State and other serious human rights abuses around the world. By sending our expert researchers to collect first hand accounts of these atrocities, we are taking the first and most crucial step towards justice.
