Ecatepec creates shelter to protect women and their children victims of violence during confinement by Covid-19
May 22th, 2020
The Ecatepec government has ready the "Petra Herrera" Overnight House, located in Ciudad Cuauhtémoc, which will house women and their children victims of abuse during house confinement due to the Covid-19 health emergency.
The municipal president Fernando Vilchis Contreras launched this project due to the increase in cases of violence inside the homes from the start of the health emergency.
Grisel Barrientos González, director of the Municipal Institute for Women and Gender Equality (Immig), affirmed that the Overnight House has the peculiarity that it will receive entire families, that is, the violated woman and her children, who will seek networks of support and employment, to empower them.
The mayor Fernando Vilchis Contreras instructed the rehabilitation of Immig facilities to turn them into the Overnight House, as reports of domestic violence increased due to the quarantine recommended by Health authorities to face the health emergency.
Immig currently has an Overnight Center at the Care Center for Victims of Violence and Missing Persons (Capevide), located in San Cristóbal, which is a small space, with 12 bunks, which is why it is insufficient.
