Help us to build a safer world for refugee women
Every Monday, over 100 women make their way to our offices in central London. They are all women who have come to the UK seeking refuge from persecution. Most of them have experienced rape or sexual violence, some have been trafficked to this country and some have fled vicious conflicts. They are all longing to find a safe place to rebuild their lives.
We provide a space for these women to support one another, eat together and learn English. We do this at the lowest cost possible, but this costs £10 per woman per week.
Can you donate today to ensure that this precious work can continue?
‘Coming here has helped me to feel at home in this country. This is where I meet my friends and where I learn to speak to everyone.’
- £40 would enable one woman to attend our group every week for a month
- £100 would enable us to provide a warm lunch for the women who attend
We also provide ongoing support for refugee women, from giving advice on their legal rights to empowering them to tell their own stories through drama, poetry and media work.
