In only 2 months, we provided as much assistance as we did for the whole year least year. We provided urgent accommodation, psychological and financial support to over 70 women.

Challenge

The current situation caused by the COVID-19 virus is critical regarding domestic violence. In Croatia, the government and social norms are failing victims of this violence (lack of counseling, shelters, SOS helpline, crisis centers, etc.). This is why we are witnessing an enormous increase in domestic violence that needs to end. We are working everyday to help abused women escape from dangerous situations.

Solution

In order to help women, the first response is to put them away from the dangerous situation which is most of the time, home. This project will provide material, financial and psychological assistance (shelter, food, transportation, legal support, COVID-19 testing) to all women victims of domestic violence. This situation is unforeseen and we do not have the necessary funds, this is the reason why we need your support.

Long-Term Impact

In a 2 months period, we did 151 hours of help and support for a total of 70 people, of whom more than 90% were women. As the crisis period continues and a new deterioration is expected, we can predict another increase in domestic violence. Moreover, the damage caused by the COVID crisis to the economy will have a direct impact on women. We expect a large increase of women in critical situations that will require our help.
