Give to Urgent Needs

Progress Through Partners

We are working with local governments and community organizations to make it easier for people to report cases of violence through phone and online hotlines.

Investigating New Cases

We are actively investigating new cases of violence and abuse and helping equip local justice officials with the tools they need to continue with their casework during lockdown.

Protecting Essential Workers

We are supporting police and legal systems by supplying personal protective equipment, making it possible for essential investigations, court proceedings and rescue operations to continue.

Meeting Urgent Needs

We are supporting survivors and their families by providing food, hygiene supplies and baby care essentials.
