While the MCO and Covid-19 have forced many of us to start working from home and spending more time in the safety of our own homes, there are many for whom home is not a safe space. For those facing domestic violence, the MCO and lockdown has left them with no other option than to stay home with their attackers. In the first half of April alone, the WAO recorded a 111.2% increase in domestic violence cases. The WAO Emergency COVID-19 Fund will be used for the following:Food and non-food items for women and children throughout the COVID-19 periodVolunteer hotline mobilisation cost - Stipend for our volunteers as WAO services extended to 24 hour supportUtilitiesGrab delivery servicesShelter support - WAO's shelter is at maximum capacity, and they are funding alternative safe spaces Social work and case management - continued throughout MCO period as Emergency Protection Orders (EPOs) and Interim Protection Orders (IPOs) are required during this stageMedical aid and legal aidCounselling and psychosocial supportSurvivor empowerment programmes via online platformsThe WAO is working hard to create access to safe spaces for survivors as many shelters are at maximum capacity, and are exploring setting up temporary shelters to support those who need a safe refuge away from domestic violence.
