As you know, in Mexico hundreds of thousands of women –many of them mothers– suffer domestic violence that goes from blackmail, control, insults, sexual abuse and beatings to feminicide
In order to escape this cycle of violence, in many cases it is vital that they leave their homes and find a safe space where they can benefit from free and integral aid with a gender and human-rights based approach.
Fortunately, we at Espacio Mujeres have been providing these services for 11 years to over 25,000 women, teenagers and children through our External Attention Center, Shelter and Transitional Home, based in Tlalpan, Mexico City.
Today we need your support to keep attending hundreds of families that are looking to rebuild their lives violence-free. Currently we have a deficit of resources to maintain our operation during the months that are not covered by the subsidies we have.
How can you help?, ¡It’s very simple!. Thanks to your contribution to this campaign, in 2020 we will be able for three months:
- Cover for a psychologist’s salary, who will provide:
450 psychological interventions such as: individual therapy sessions for women, and girls, boys and adolescents; group therapy sessions, family sessions, detection of possible cases of child sexual abuse and workshops.
- Pay the fees for a full-time lawyer who will be responsible for:
240 legal actions, which include legal advice with a gender and human rights perspective, complaints and demands, accompaniment in legal proceedings, follow-up in various processes and group counseling.
In 2019 we attended more than 1400 women, girls and boys victims of family violence. In 2020 we estimate that our beneficiary population will be of 1600 people who require the free and comprehensive support services of Espacio Mujeres.
You can contribute to that estimate becoming a reality!
