Your donations have started saving lives...

Dear Supporters,

 

A call away from a new life! Because of your generosity through donations to our COVID-19 Emergency appeal one of the projects we were able to launch was a toll-free phone line for victims of domestic violence. 

 

With national lockdowns being imposed by governments around the world we noticed a quick spike in domestic violence cases as people began to be in each other's space 24/7.   In Zimbabwe, over 10,000 women reported sexual abuse yearly before COVID-19 and our new project for Women Empowerment in Zimbabwe reached out to us to help those in need as numbers begain to rise with lockdown. 

 

Because of your donations and support we were able to fund a toll-free phone call centre for victims of domestic abuse to reach out to confidentially. The phone line has now been toll-free for a week and we have already received two calls that the team are working with and we will begin to advertise and market this service across local communities from next week. 

 

Your donations have funded this project to be toll-free for the next 3 months but we have many more projects in need of funding to do similar projects and help communities as we begin to open economies and businesses. The rebuild post COVID-19 is already shaping up to look like a challenging task but together we can help everyone retrain and enter the new world we all face. 

 

Thank you for your continued support during such a challenging time and we would like to remind you that GlobalGiving are running a very special match funding day on July 15th when donations of $100 or more will be matched, we would be very grateful if you can put this date in your diary and help us share our project with your network on this day! 

 

If you would like to find out more about our project please do reach out to us at hello@gvitrust.org 

 

With Gratitude,

 

Emergency Response To Corona Virus
