Give a Christmas gift to victims of domestic violence

Give a Christmas gift to victims of domestic violence

Give a gift this Christmas, not only to your own loved ones, but also to an unknown battered woman. They live among us with hidden pain and suffering. They cannot enjoy a beautiful and merry Christmas. From their close ones they only receive wounds to their body and spirit, never gifts.

We turn to you with a request for a gift for victims of domestic violence who are served by the charity Magdala Counseling Center. In this time of preparation for Christmas, this Advent season give battered women this help:

Professional therapeutic service

Provide her with a trained counselor who has gone through rigorous professional training in counseling. One hour of this therapy for this mother costs about 250 Czech crowns. With this gift you could give one hour of counseling to a battered woman.

Direct material aid

Women often flee their homes and come to Magdala with nothing more than their identity documents. Help us provide food, medicine, and public transportation tickets for them and their children, and provide them with safe and secure lodging. For each of these women we need an average of 500 Czech crowns.

Diagnostic aids

Assessing the family situation, including small children, is not often easy. Special support is necessary and a diagnostic tool for assessing risk in families facing domestic violence is essential to provide this support. The funding for both costs 50,000 Czech crowns.

Please send your gifts by bank transfer to the Caritas of the Archdiocese of Prague: 749011/5500, variable symbol 4505. Thank you!
