Project Report | Sep 10, 2018
This is the final campaign report!

Dear friends and supporters, 

We are happy to share with you that we have reached our funding goal (Yei!), and soon our campaign will be going to an end. It has been an incredible experience to have had your support during this time, and to achieve together our aim. Now, we would like to share with you the goals we have accomplished thanks to your help.

We were able to maintain our refuge service provision and counselling for the Latin American Women and Children who were fleeing gender violence, especially domestic abuse:

- We have provided emergency shelter and support to 17 women and their children: this includes the emotional and practical support women and children need when fleeing violence. 

- 75 women have received emotional counselling service, provided in their own language (Spanish or Portuguese). This enables a more confident space for women, as they can express themselves in their mother tongue.

- We have supported 91 women through our advice centre, offering legal, family and benefits surgeries support.

Once again, we want to let you know that your donations were essential for this to happen. As you know, our refuge is more than a roof, it’s a place of healing, hope, and new beginnings, where women and their children have the chance to rebuild their lives and start fresh after a traumatic experience.

As we continue to struggle with public funding cuts, every penny makes a difference and help us in our journey to provide holistic support for victims of domestic violence.

To finalize, we also want to share with you that we have just open our second refuge. This represents an incredible achievement for us and the women of our community, especially within the hostile environment BME women organisations face right now.

Once again, many thanks for your support!

LAWA Team.
