This holiday season, will you help "Save a Girl"? (Matching Funds!)

Women's Rights Without Frontiers | Forced Abortion Is Not A Choice |

Lijuan, rescued from abandonment by our "Save a Girl" Campaign.
This holiday season, will you help “Save a Girl?”
A girl like Lijuan?

Lijuan’s parents already had one daughter, so when they found out they were pregnant again, they hoped to have a boy. Families in the countryside are “allowed” a second child if their first child is a girl. Like most families in the countryside, Lijuan’s parents regarded this second pregnancy as their last chance to have a boy.
When Lijuan’s mother was 8 months pregnant, she had an ultrasound to determine the sex of the baby. After learning that she was carrying a girl, Lijuan’s mother immediately resolved to “give her away” -- where, we don’t know. Some girls are left on the steps to orphanages or in public parks. Others are simply abandoned in fields to die.
Women’s Rights Without Frontiers was alerted and one of our fieldworkers rushed to Lijuan’s mother to encourage her not to abandon her daughter. So many of the mothers in our program are astonished that someone would take the trouble to travel to their doorsteps to tell them that girls have the same right to live and to be loved as boys – and who will back up that message with a monthly stipend to help them support their daughter for a full year.
Our fieldworker arrived just in the nick of time -- Lijuan was born earlier than expected. Thanks to the “Save a Girl” campaign, her mother had changed her mind and decided to keep her daughter. The life of a girl, a mother, and a family has been forever changed.
And that’s how change starts – we are ending gendercide in China, one baby girl at a time.
Double your impact! We have $5,000 in matching funds!
Would you consider becoming a monthly donor, a “GirlSaver?”
For only $25 per month or $300 per year, our GirlSavers have helped WRWF save at-risk baby girls in China, girls like Lijuan, who might not be alive and in the arms of their parents if one of our undercover fieldworkers had not met her mother and assured her that little girls are just as special as boys. Because of your generosity, we can continue to save girls and advance pro-girl/pro-woman values in China.


Your donation enables Women’s Rights Without Frontiers to continue to be a voice for the voiceless women and children of China. This huge effort comes at a cost. We need your support. Please give as generously as you can. Every donation makes a difference! Thank you for your generosity!
