Geneva, Switzerland was the historic site of the 2018 Tiffany Circle International Forum. The Swiss Red Cross was critical in assisting the international societies in planning and gathering information, making the Forum an educational journey on the work of the Red Cross across the globe. Shortly after attending the Forum, the Swiss Red Cross announced their very first member, and have become an active participant in monthly Council calls to learn and grow. The Circle has now 15 members and has chosen to support two projects, one in Switzerland, the other in Syria which empower women to become more self-reliant.
As part of its international commitment, Tiffany Circle Switzerland has taken on the mission of providing help and support to vulnerable women in Syria. A country where the scars of war are still so strong. A country where there is so much to rebuild. Buying back livestock, re-launching family farms, coaching women to create dairy products to sell, allowing these communities to become autonomous again, this is what the commitment of Tiffany Circle Switzerland will provide.
In parallel, on a Swiss scale, our project is to develop legal support allowing migrants to reunite with loved ones from whom they were separated during their migration.
