Emergency Safe House


Since 2012, we are running an Emergency Safe House for abused women that are in urgent need of shelter. It is the only Emergency Safe House in the region that invariably accepts any woman, regardless of her social status, skin colour or religion, and offers her and her children shelter.

Theres is a warm bed, three meals a day, shelter and a counsellor on duty who will be able to provide support, 24-hours a day for victims of sexual violence and domestic and child abuse. 

Furthermore, the women have the opportunity to accompaniment to court appointments, get legal advice and support to open a case and hold their perpetrators accountable for their action.
