AMIRAH FOUNDATION AND MUSLIM AID: TO SUPPORT VULNERABLE WOMEN
Often women will attempt to flee Domestic Violence but have no where to go with their children which either leaves them homeless or in many cases with the abusive partner. This project enabled us to support those women who are fleeing domestic violence, not just with safe secure housing but with holistic support services for their road to recovery.
This project started in September 2013 and finished in September 2014. The services were provided in Birmingham, UK.
Our main beneficiaries were women, children under the age of 16 and people suffering from financial and economic exclusion. Secondary beneficiaries were Muslims living in poverty who are unable to afford the basic essentials such as food, heating and lighting. Wider beneficiaries included the Muslim community, Muslim charities and local Masjids.
Muslim Aid assisted 60 women who were victim of Domestic Violence by organising safe accommodation for them away from the perpetrators, small group sessions and peer support, assisting them in claiming benefits and finding work placements and trainings
