Story

Women's Center "Gulrukhsor" is seeking urgent funding to cover the costs of running our shelter. The worst cases of violence are usually seen in the women staying in the shelter; women who have been raped and are facing severe health problems as a result, women who have been severely beaten, women who have suffered long term debilitating emotional abuse, women who are attempting suicide.

Over the last 7 months, for 80% of the time we have always had at least one woman staying in the shelter, and at times have had eight people at once, and in total 81 women and children. The costs for running the shelter are relatively small, just over $1100 a month. But it has a life changing impact on women’s lives. Many are literally transformed by the safety and refuge provided by the shelter and the care of the women who staff it.

2021 is the 25th anniversary of Public Organisation Women’s Center “Gulrukhsor”, based in Khujand. We are currently looking for funding of $14,000 to fund our shelter for a year. These funds don’t go towards to costs of running the office, they are dedicated to providing women victims of violence with essential refuge in times of crisis, and cover electricity, water, food, and personnel staffing the shelter.

In 2020 Women’s Center “Gulrukhsor” provided over 2000 consultations to women victims of domestic violence. All of our services are free of charge. We have a telephone hotline that is manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We provide social worker services, legal advice and psychological counselling, all free of charge. Our shelter has 3 dedicated bedrooms, and flexibility to expand to up to 8 rooms when needed; we are always ready to accept women when they need us.

Any funding that you would be able to provide us with would make a huge different to the lives of women in Khujand and the surrounding areas.

    In the last 11 months, with your support, we have provided 102 women and children with refuge in times of crisis & fear. In the previous 11 months when we had no funding, we were only able to house 18 women & children. There is a critical need; to allow women to escape from violence. Women come in the middle of the night or sometimes after spending time on the street. We often provide counselling and support all night long to those in serious crisis situations. And then we provide a calm place, time for healing and a supportive environment.

    Our #shelter is #lifechanging. Feedback from a woman who suffered serious sexual abuse from her husband, resulting in on-going physical trauma. "When I crossed the threshold of the Center I began a new life. I am grateful to all of you. I cannot express my feelings in words to express my gratitude. Everyone here is caring and friendly. My son was treated with love and respect. Thanks to the Center, I found the right path in life. With help my feelings changed. I was able to pull myself together. I had the desire to move on."
