Description

Many women and their children across in Edinburgh are living in emotionally, physically, sexually, or economically abusive circumstances. With your donations, Edinburgh Women's Aid can offer support to these vulnerable people, through calls and support sessions as well as necessary equipment, food, and shelter. Leaving an abusive partner can often become even more difficult when the victim is not financially independent. Some abusers do not let their victims have access to their own money, which can cause great anxiety for the victim about managing their own finances.

Importance Importance

Providing essential groceries can relieve victims from financial anxiety and give them a basis by which they can learn to manage financially if they are not able to in their current position. It can give women the confidence to know that by getting out the abusive situation, they will still be able to feed, clothe, and shelter themselves and any dependants they have.
