This year the Survivors’ Forum, took place online between 25-27th of November. We presented the local communities in Bucharest, Sibiu, Brașov, Satu Mare and Cluj-Napoca, which are managed by A.L.E.G. and experienced local partners. We also discussed about the impact of the communities so far, the efforts made to replicate this model in the Republic of Moldova with the support of UN Women Moldova, the Coalition “Life without violence” and the Embassy of Sweden in Chișinău, as well as new financial empowerment activities supporting women to face the economic crisis.
We talked about the role of a psychologist and support groups, highlighting the importance of reciprocal help. We asked the Survivors’ from #ȘiEuReușesc network what would be the message they would like to send to other women to encourage and empower them. You can find all their answers here.
