The ASTRAIA foundation supports a house in Ghor province in Afghanistan, where abused and ostracised women can be protected. Ghor is one of the poorest provinces in the western region of Pakistan and women often lack the most basic of human rights. There is no institutional protection against abuse and human trafficking of women.
On the internet one can find videos showing women who tried to flee from their abusive husbands. As a punishment for this attempt they were flogged by policemen, and afterwards expelled from the community. Up til now there was no place for them to go and no one to protect them. This situation can now change with your help.
