The Urgent Action Funds (the Sister Funds) comprise a global sisterhood of four independent funds (Urgent Action Fund – Africa; Urgent Action Fund – Asia and Pacific; Urgent Action Fund – Latin America and the Caribbean; Urgent Action Fund for Women’s Human Rights) each dedicated to strengthening the resilience and security of women human rights defenders and their organizations and movements.
The Sister Funds have a twenty-year track record in the successful provision of rapid response security and protection support to WHRDS, maintaining an average response of just 24-72 hours and making urgent support accessible via online, secure, simple applications that are available in multiple languages 24 hours/7 days/365 days each year.
