The EMWF advocates for helpline services to provide support, advice, information, and crisis counselling as well as legal support and human security for women and girls in the Euro-Mediterranean countries suffering from gender violence, discrimination and domestic abuse. We thank all the organisations that are providing such services for women, girls and vulnerable groups.
Here’s an up-to-date list of the helpline numbers concerning the countries of the Union for the Mediterranean.
Please do not hesitate to share it among your contacts.
Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any relevant information to add to the list.
