Every day in Ghana, at least 2 victims of abuse seek help from the police to find shelter from their abusers. Unfortunately, in December 2016, the Ark Foundation’s Shelter for Battered Women & Children closed its doors after 17 years of operation. This was mainly due to lack of funding. The Shelter was the only functional shelter for domestic abuse victims (both women and children) in the country, and since it’s closing, it has been a huge challenge to protect and reintegrate woman and children who are victims of domestic violence.
Proceeds from this campaign will enable the Ark Foundation to reopen its doors and operate for the first year to provide critical services to women and children facing domestic abuse. Your continuous support will enable the Shelter stay open to provide the critical services needed.
Please support this campaign by making a one time donation or a monthly donation to reopen and keep open the Ark shelter for battered women and children in Ghana.See the campaign website here.
