Fund to Support Women Victims of Domestic Violence

It is targeted at organizations that provide legal, psychological and social consultations and support crisis accommodation centres. Women and their children receive security and protection, emotional recovery and social rehabilitation. In order to get out of the midst of violence and to continue their lives outside, they need encouragement and faith in themselves and in their capabilities.

There is no accurate statistics on the number of victims of domestic violence despite the summaries that every fourth woman has been the subject. Financing through government-delegated budgets does not cover much of the real needs of organizations. On the other hand, donor programs assume that organizations have budgets.

The fund is powered by corporate and private donations. Grants are distributed through competitions among organizations working in the field. The types of activities to be supported are:

  • psychological and social counselling, mediation in contacts with other institutions, counselling with lawyer and lawsuits under the Law on Protection from Domestic Violence, Hotline for Victims,
  • mobile work with open reception in small settlements, so that women from the most remote villages can gain access to support in a situation of violence,
  • work with domestic violence perpetrators for which funds are available only through projects with the Ministry of Justice that are limited in time and the program has a longer period,
  • medical care - a large part of the injured are uninsured and have no income to pay for a medical examination and a medical certificate,
  • food, including baby food, medicines, clothes, shoes, accommodation,
  • professional courses in manicure, pedicure, hairdressing, and waitresses.

If you support this cause, you can donate to the fund online, via PayPal or through a bank transfer through the or contact us.
