Children who are victims of domestic violence
It is essential that children who suffer violence within their family can receive help that corresponds to their specific needs, whether they are alone or accompanied by a parent. Switzerland has many institutions which work on child protection. However, there is still a lack of space in emergency accommodations, both for children on their own and for children accompanied by a mother or father who is also a victim of violence. Furthermore, not all institutions are able to respond adequately to the specific needs of the people who come to them for help.
In addition to providing support and assistance to children who are victims of domestic violence, we support projects dedicated to the early recognition of domestic violence, the prevention of violence and the promotion of health.
