Struggling to make ends meet as government support requires 50 per cent of their budget to come from other sources, NGO-run shelters for victims of domestic abuse might face closure once again.

Kosovo shelters for victims fleeing domestic violence are having financial difficulties, which could lead to their closure once again.

In January, eight of the nine institutions which provide shelter to women and children fleeing domestic abuse in Kosovo closed temporarily after government funds for January and February were delayed. The government allocated emergency funds to keep the shelters afloat in mid-January, but the institutions, which are run by local NGOs, are once again facing financial strain.
