Provide a safe place for women and girls fleeing violence
With your help, we could provide emergency shelter and protection for women and girls in India facing abuse and exploitation.
Will you donate €5 per month today? Your long-term support could help fund the cost of bringing a vulnerable girl into the safety and sanctuary of ActionAid’s One-Stop Crisis Centre in India.
This centre provides a safe place to escape from danger, receive medical treatment, talk to counsellors and receive free legal aid. All under one roof.
Talat (26, pictured above) is one of the women who has been supported by the centre. She was married at 17 – happily at first until her husband began abusing and imprisoning her. Talat escaped and got in touch with a lawyer at the Crisis Centre.
“ActionAid and Gauravi [Crisis Centre] have been very important in my life. When I needed support in my life they were there. Today, whatever I am doing is because of the confidence and support they gave me.” – Talat.
