What a year it’s been. One year ago, we were waving goodbye to 2019 and looking towards 2020 with anticipation. But this year has turned out to be very different than any of us expected.
When Covid-19 brought the world to a halt at the beginning of the year, none of us knew the impact the pandemic would have, and even now it’s still not clear just how much the virus has changed the world and the way we live, work and interact. But with vaccines more clearly on the horizon, our communal hope for some return to normality is growing.
We understand that at this point, you might be ready to say good riddance to 2020 – but before we do, it’s worth acknowledging that even in this difficult year there have been incredible moments of progress.
Despite the challenges facing both providers and clients throughout the year, there have also been stories of resilience and adaptation. Times when rapid innovation, dedication and determination have been crucial. At MSI Reproductive Choices, we have seen our providers, along with others in the public and private sector, work tirelessly to adapt and innovate so that services can stay open, safely.
Today we want to share some of our favourite stories of resilience with you. We hope they inspire you as much as they inspired us:
These stories and others like them from around the world continue to motivate us to do what we can to ensure reproductive rights and services for all, wherever they may be.
When we now turn our heads to look at what lies ahead, we are excited, hopeful and humble about the challenges we will be facing together. And at the heart of everything, is our vision for the future: that by 2030, no abortion will be unsafe and every individual who wants access to contraception will have it.
We are confident, that with your support, we can make this happen, and women and girls everywhere will be able to exercise their right to reproductive choice.
MSI campaigns to remove barriers to access and protect a woman’s right to choose. With your support, we can continue to provide services to women and girls around the world. Did you know that as little as £6 can provide a woman with the contraception of her choice for a year?Back to news
