          Blaustein Foundation Gives Refugee Center $50,000 to Aid Women, Children

          The Jacob and Hilda Blaustein Foundation has awarded $50,000 in grants over two years to support the work of the Center for Gender & Refugee Studies (CGRS).

          CGRS protects the fundamental human rights of refugee women, children, LGBT individuals, and others who flee persecution in their home countries. CGRS provides legal expertise and training; engages in impact litigation, policy development, and research; undertakes in-country fact-finding; and uses international human rights tools to address the root causes of gender-based persecution.

          "We depend on the generosity of foundation such as the Jacob and Hilda Blaustein Foundatio to help women and children who have fled violence in their home countries. With the assistance of our funders, we are able to positively impact the decisions in individual cases, while engaging in national initiatives that allow us to influence the development of the law,” said director Karen Musalo.
