Summary

When poor women who are physically, psychologically or sexually assaulted by their partners or ex-partners flee or report these crimes, they urgently need a safe place where they and their children can stay temporarily to protect their lives. With your help, we will be able to provide nutritional food, personal hygiene items, psychological and legal counseling, therapeutic activities and social accompaniment to these victims of gender violence, in our Shelter House for Women Victims of Violence.

Challenge

In Colombia, violence against women does not stop and, every day, between two and three of them are killed; 156 are victims of domestic violence and 45 of sexual violence. So much so that every month, 3 or 4 women suffer aggression with chemical agents. We need to reduce the risk of femicide, because every hour, 4 women, many of them mothers, are victims of domestic violence and every two and a half days a woman is killed by her partner or ex-partner, this situation seriously affects children.

Solution

To ensure the protection and comprehensive care for mothers and their children and to prevent them from dying, or that be victims from mutilated, burned, hanged, sexually abused or suffering from any other violent act, we work to strengthen Shelter House for Women Victims, increasing efforts and looking for sponsorship to support and financing for oncoming years. We help recover victims' self-love, to improve their education and for them to receive medical care, surgeries or physical therapies.

Long-Term Impact

The chain of violence will be broken in many families and in couples who, for many years, have only known this form of social interaction, where fear, aggressive language and possessive behaviors are protagonists. The impact on the psychosocial development of children facing domestic violence will be mitigated. Women will have the possibility to recompose their life projects. Malnutrition will be avoided. The number of people attended will increase (currently 44 = 15 women, 17 girls and 12 boys)
