The evening’s fundraising will focus on women in Nigeria, affected by extreme poverty and rising instability, and Syrian and Iraqi women refugees.

“Women facing violence, maginalisation and poverty due to war and conflict need our support. Together we can achieve progress. Their strength, their commitment and their achievements define us all,” says Zaha Hadid.
