Safe Houses Receive Over $56K in Support

Safe Houses across the country have received support of just over fifty six thousand dollars.  The support came through the Spouses of CARICOM Leaders Action Network (SCLAN), the Office of the Special Envoy for the Development of Families and Children, and the Spotlight Initiative.  The support was by way of groceries, food hampers and essential household items. A joint release issued today highlighted that safe houses provide an important service to victims and survivors of domestic violence, human trafficking, and other forms of gender-based violence. It added that there is an urgent need for these safe houses to be provided with support as they are key to aiding survivors of gender-based violence when they are displaced and in need of a safe space for themselves and their children. Love News understands that there are three safe houses that provide service to the entire country and provide shelter for victims of various socioeconomic backgrounds, including marginalized populations, to ensure that “no one is left behind”. It concluded by stating that these safe houses are a lifeline to women survivors as they not only provide a physically secure place where survivors can have their basic needs taken care of, but they also provide other support services including referral services.
