Feel safe, with Lila.Help

If a someone needs help from gender-based violence, what number do you want to give them?

Imagine if…
… Someone you love gets threatened and feels they need to leave and find help.
… Your colleague based abroad quietly tells you that she is being abused by her intimate partner.
… A family member had a date during their holiday and calls you after getting assaulted.

The last thing you want to do is to inadvertently send your niece, colleague, neighbor, or your friend to an organization which advertises that they help victims, but in reality is trafficking or otherwise harming women and children. In too many communities, organizations purport to help victims, but in reality, counsel women to return to their abusive husbands.


  • There was NO respected international website that lists accurate, vetted, and safe resources for survivors of gender-based violence in every country across the world;
  • There were many organizations and volunteers who provide information, but keeping information up to date is a big challenge;
  • There was no global organization responsible for collecting and constantly updating reliable and accurate helpline information on every continent.

We changed this, by creating

  • A global directory where all survivors of gender-based violence, supporting family/friends and professionals, can easily find trustworthy information on support services in almost every country in the world;
  • Organizing international and national strategies to create, support and secure women’s helplines, shelters and other support services in every country of the world.
