The story behind Marion Fund

The beautiful woman, Marion Hochar Ibrahimchah:

Influential, positive, passionate, and radiating is what we recall from Marion who was among the 187+ innocent victims of the devastating blast.

Passionate about arts, music, and design, she was led a successful career in the advertising field. Marion was the number one supporter of women economic empowerment.

Together with her husband Georges, they raised two wonderful sons Alexandre & William, who want her to be remembered for her faith, patriotism, honesty, exigence, intelligence, humor, joy, passion, beauty, humility, and Love with a big L.

It all started there, The Marion Fund was established in her memory.

We, at SFW implemented this fund to help women-led SMEs affected by the blast.

Why Women?

According to many studies, during crisis women are less likely to recover and are often neglected.


When women are economically independent they are better able to mitigate and leave violent situations, and their children are more likely to live a life free from poverty.
