The new women’s and children’s shelter has started operations in Troisdorf. In the coming weeks, the differently sized apartments for women and children will be occupied. At a small celebration in the new building, the speakers not only paid tribute to the commitment of the investors Gabriele and Werner Heep, who had the house built and renting it out to the sponsoring association Women Help Women. A plaque in the entrance also reminds of the great support the project received from the Rotary Club Troisdorf.
The Troisdorfers started an international funding project with other Rotary clubs from the region, but also from the Netherlands and the USA. Around 100,000 euros were raised in this way; Money that went into furnishing the apartments as well as into the IT infrastructure.
Access to the women’s shelter in Troisdorf is controlled
Rotarians from Troisdorf and neighboring clubs also actively helped with painting, gardening, and moving in and out.
The fact that money from the donation pot has also flowed into technology for monitoring the building shows a fundamental change in women’s shelter work in Troisdorf: The previously anonymous house at an unknown address will work openly in the future. Women who are fleeing violence do not have to hide in the women’s refuge, emphasize the staff.
Openness and integration in the Friedrich-Wilhelms-Hütte district are further goals. To ensure that this succeeds, the specialists worked with the police in Siegburg to create a protection concept. This includes a fence and an access control system as well as video surveillance, a house alarm with emergency buttons and the connection to a security company.
