ROSA e.V. is a non-profit organisation that uses a converted truck to provide a safe space for women fleeing. We work on a voluntary basis and all donations flow directly and completely into the implementation of the project.
Since March 8, 2022, the Rolling Safespace has been at its first location: the Attica peninsula in Greece. Here, three refugee accommodations north of Athens are regularly approached: Ritsona, Malakasa and Oinofyta. Approximately 3,500 people live there.
Specifically, a space for exchange and mutual support has been created in the immediate vicinity of the camps. Within the framework of discussion groups, topics can be shared for which there is often no space (e.g. questions about the body). Basic medical care and pregnancy counselling are offered by midwives and doctors in a separate treatment room in the truck. Urgently needed hygiene items are also handed out here. ROSA also organises a variety of sports and exercise programs. At the same time, childcare is provided so that women have the opportunity to take advantage of these offers. The safer space is aimed at people who are exposed to additional stress (on the run) because of their gender. You can find more information about the project under ABOUT ROSA E.V..
In order to be able to keep up the continuous work in Greece, we need a lot of donations, members and people who want to support us with their time!
