Refugee Ladies Learn to Defend Themselves

As our work on Lesvos is pretty much focused on refugee women and children, we regularly hear about the challenges women living in the refugee camp face. So, when we received an offer from Life Pacific College to host a week long Self-Defence Classes at our All4Women Community Centre, we knew this would be a success!

The refugee ladies absolutely loved learning ways to defend themselves and are continuing to practice much of what they learned. Many of the women told us that they didn’t know they were capable of defending themselves like this before. Many said they now feel much safer and stronger after this week of training.

Thank you Aimee Selby and the rest of the Life Pacific team for empowering our refugee ladies of Lesvos! We are forever grateful for your work!
