The action program 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 them support and counselling.
In cooperation with Verikom, a multilingual flyer providing the addresses of instituitions that offered help to victims of violence in an emergency situation was developed.
In addition, a self-help group was founded for elderly female migrants who are victims of domestic violence. During the program they met at Amnesty for Women e.V. on a regularly basis.
