'Tis the Season to Support a Safe House in Armenia

Organized by: Christina Mehranbod

THE STORY:

We run one of two shelters in all of Armenia for women and children survivors of domestic violence. 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. 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 $5,000 to reach our goal! The funds will be invested into developing 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 $20 will support one woman or child with a full welcoming kit. 'Tis the Season to donate and make a difference in a woman or child's life!
