The actionprogram Silia- Sicher leben im Alter was supported by the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth and was conducted from September 2009 until June 2011.
The program targeted elderly female migrants who experienced violence in their relationship and offered support and counselling.
In cooperation with Verikom a multilingual flyer was developed which provided adresses of several institutions offering help for victims of violence in an emergency situation.
In addition, a selfhelp group was founded for elderly female migrants who became victims of domestic violence. During the program they met at Amnesty for Women e.V. on a regularly basis.
