Staying Safe During COVID19
During the COVID-19 pandemic and under the guidance to physically distance and isolate, women and children are at a greater risk of experiencing abuse, particularly at home. Stop VAW and all its members have a responsibility to ensure all programs, services, and resources continue to be accessible and available to ensure women and their children can remain as safe as possible during this time.
