Due to lockdown measures caused by COVID-19, Anah Project has seen an increase in referrals and cause for support in domestic violence and abuse cases. Because of strict yet necessary isolation measures, it is virtually impossible for those affected by domestic abuse to escape it.
LandAid’s £10,000 grant will provide Anah Project’s staff with PPE to ensure they can continue working safely. This grant will also help 12 women pay for their gas electric, water rates, emergency food, travel and a tv license for six months.
Anah Project provides safe refuge accommodation for women and young girls 16- years and over, who are fleeing domestic abuse and violence, forced marriage, so-called honour-based violence and female genital mutilation. Anah Project provides support and accommodation to women and girls who are from the Black, Asian, Minority, Ethnic and Refugee community. Through their work they actively promote the rights of women and challenge attitudes and behaviours that normalise gender- based violence and abuse.
