We congratulate all women on International Women’s Day.

When is the hardest you are strong, worthy, and raise up your male and female children in the spirit of equality!

Statement by the Gender Equality Ombudsperson on the International Women’s Day

After ten years of our shelter for children and adult victims of domestic violence, we can identify some trends in the characteristics and types of violence, the duration of the same as well as the demographic characteristics of the victims who used our services.

On that occasion, we created a video spot where we would like to invite all victims to stay silent and not behind the closed doors of their homes.

Look at the spot and remind yourself of the facts mentioned in it!

Seek help personally or empower someone close to you who is in need of help and protection!

Video – Family is (no) safe place!

We also prepared an evaluation study at this time, which is available to you for a PPP review on the following link: EVALUATION OF WORK AT 10 YEARS


If you are a victim of violence and want to protect yourself from the perpetrator by physical departure from the common living space, call the police 192 or call the appropriate social welfare center at your place of residence.
They will let you know how to get on temporary accommodation with us where you will get professional help and protection.


  • If you are exposed to domestic violence
    If you feel alone and unknowing about this problem
    Come with confidence
    Come on for support
    Come through the information and free advice
