UNHCR has committed an additional $3.4 million to women and girls in high risk situations. Guterres, UN High Commission for Refugees, had this to say about it:
"We, especially men, are often reticent to speak out to condemn violence against women and girls. But this should not be viewed as a personal matter; it is an essential part of our work to promote international protection," added Guterres, who said he always made it a point to listen to women and children during field trips to understand their concerns and determine if "we are providing them with the protection they need."
