UAE to launch mobile app to help abuse victims

Shamsaha, a Bahraini-based non-profit organisation, that offers 24/7 crisis support for victims of abuse and domestic violence, will be launching the app before rolling it out in the UAE by the third quarter of 2021.

Through the mobile app, victims of domestic abuse in the GCC will have available to them, for the first time, a full scale 24/7 women’s crisis advocacy programme that offers emotional and logistic support along with information and resources, said Mary-Justine Todd, Shamsaha Founder and Executive Director.

Shamsaha is also looking to expand its services and on-ground operations to the KSA, Oman, and Kuwait.

The move comes after the non-profit organisation received Dh1.24 million from L’Oréal Fund for Women to support its mission in protecting, advocating and empowering women in the GCC.
