Euro-Mediterranean Hotline Numbers list

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 euromedwomen@iemed.org should you have any relevant information to add to the list.
