Secret Help for Domestic Violence: Krysia Paszko / Founder, Camomiles and Pansies
Paszko launched a fake online cosmetic shop since the coronavirus pandemic began. Many women have faced abuse from partners during the lockdown. They could secretly send SOS messages through a shop.
An online shop launched called "Camomiles and Pansies" last April in Poland. It aimed to help women in difficult situations during the lockdown.
At first glance, it resembles a shop selling cosmetics. But in reality it's where victims of domestic violence can safely get advice and support.
Paszko was still in high school when she launched a fake cosmetic shop. Now her project is supported by about 50 people, including psychologists, lawyers and volunteers introduced by rights organizations. She ensures smooth coordination.
