Located in Itaboraí, outside Rio de Janeiro, Abrigo Rainha Silvia works since 1989 as a shelter for homeless mothers, pregnant women in risk situation and women who have suffered domestic abuse and violence.
The Abrigo provides these women not only a safe environment for their children, but also psychological, pedagogic, medical and legal support.
In the end of January, Abrigo Rainha Silvia was hit by a flood that destroyed much of the local infrastructure and office equipment.
The institution needs donations to rebuild its sewage system, which was damaged by the severe flood and needs an immediate response. In addition to that, all donations of equipment and office supplies are welcome and highly appreciated.
