Attached is a call for urgent assistance from the United Nations Trust 
Fund to End Violence against Women.

The United Nations Trust Fund to End Violence against Women (“UN Trust 
Fund”) is a leading global source of support for country and local-level 
action to end violence against women and girls established by the 
General Assembly. It relies on voluntary contributions from governments, 
the private sector and concerned individuals. Since its founding in 
1997, it has helped many women and communities around the world work 
towards eliminating the scourge of pervasive violence. Due to the global 
economic and financial crisis, the UN Trust Fund is facing a dramatic 
shortfall in donor contributions. This year, the Fund has received more 
than 1600 proposals from all over the world. But there’s only $9 million 
available. Not even half of the $22 million granted last year.
