Refugees are uniquely vulnerable, but refugee girls are doubly so. That's why I'm teaming up with CARE and CARE Action to visit women and girls across the world and see firstand the unique struggles they face, and their resilience up against violence and danger. I hope you'll join me in standing up for girls in emergencies globally.

- More than 17 million girls have been forced from their homes due to violence and conflict.
- In emergencies, girls are the first to be trafficked for sex or child labor; the first to be exploited as tools of war; the last to be fed; and the last to be enrolled in school.
- Girls are 2.5 times more likely to be out of school in conflict-affected countries than their counterparts in conflict-free countries.
- This year alone, more than 137 million people will rely on humanitarian assistance to meet their most basic needs.
