TIS THE SEASON TO SUPPORT A SAFE HOUSE IN ARMENIA
Women’s Support Center is a non-profit organization that is considered one of the most professional centers dealing with victims of domestic violence in Armenia. We are committed to providing a safe space for survivors of domestic violence and ending violence against women.
Internationally, holidays tend to be the time when domestic violence support centers receive higher numbers of survivors seeking refuge and support. We run one of the two shelters in all of Armenia for women and children survivors of domestic violence. When women come to our shelter, they are fleeing extremely dangerous situations and often bring nothing with them. For this reason, we provide them with basic necessities, such as clothing and hygiene products, in an effort to help them back on their feet and regain their dignity.
We need to raise $6,000 to reach our goal. The funds will be invested into developing welcoming kits for all women and children who need shelter services in 2016. These kits will include a toothbrush and toothpaste, soap, shampoo and conditioner, a comb, feminine hygiene, undergarments, towels, and more. A small gift of $30 will support one woman or child with a full welcoming kit.
OUR GOAL: PROVIDE THE SHELTER 200 WELCOME PACKAGES FOR THE NEW YEAR.
Our shelter, which has been at full capacity for over three months, may soon need to serve a larger pool of women and children seeking services following the New Year. The Armenian Government does not offer a shelter or any support to NGOs carrying out this work, so we are the lifeline to these women. Every single one of your donations makes a difference in the lives of those at our shelter!
