Russia: Crisis Center for single mothers opened in St Petersburg

For a woman it is an opportunity to solve multiple problems: absence of lodging, problems with documents, infant child, no relatives or close friends, need for therapy. For each of them, finally, it is a matter of life.

Since requests to state institutions had been routinely rejected, NGO Humanitarian Action, SWAN member from St Petersburg, Russia, decided to develop their own service.

Special thanks go to the Foundation of Child Protection in St. Petersburg for their understanding, to St. Petersburg Women’s Club for their support (including financial assistance) and to the Businessmen Union of St. Petersburg for willingness to help.

NGO “Humanitarian Action” is working with sex workers in three directions: HIV prevention among sex workers, medical and social accompaniment, and harm reduction. Crisis Apartment seeks additional support.
