Atina and UNFPA in response to refugee women’s needs

Project „Local support to the most vulnerable refugees“ was carried out by NGO Atina in partnership with United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).

Atina’s response to women refugees’ needs is based on the activities of the mobile teams which have enabled maintaining a timely support system created three years ago, when refugee and migrant crisis expanded on the Balkan route. Thanks to the individual work, through urgent interventions in the field, counselling, and case management, the team has provided support to women and girls coming from the refugee and migrant population.

Women who suffer violence – the same problem in different cultures

Migrant women, Roma women, women with disabilities and the elderly are the most vulnerable social groups, and often suffer domestic violence as well. Although there are cultural and traditional inequalities between women who ran from war-torn African countries and women in Serbia, when it comes to violence - there is almost no difference at all. Because of fear, or because they have been taught from an early age that they are property of their families and husbands, they rarely dare to report the perpetrator.
