A delegation from an all-women international convoy visited the head of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in the nation’s capital Tuesday, Anadolu Agency reports.

Nalan Dal, spokesperson of the Conscience Convoy, briefed the Patriarch Filaret on the convoy’s goals and projects.

Dal said delegations of the convoy are visiting various countries, parliaments, religious authorities and government officials to request their support in putting the issue of imprisoned Syrian women on their agenda.

“We want to highlight this issue in every society so that people know what is happening to women in the prisons of Syria,” she said.

Speaking about the current work of the convoy, Dal said the visit also shows solidarity with Ukrainian mothers who lost their sons during the conflict in the county’s east since 2014.
