Elena Fiskova met with the leadership of the Urgent Action Fund
On April 9, 2019, the leadership of the Urgent Action Fund met with activists of Ukrainian human rights organizations.
Elena Fiskova, head of the board of CO “Legalife-Ukraine”, shared her impressions.
Since 1997, the Urgent Action Fund has been helping women around the world in critical situations, issuing quick response grants for 1-10 days. The size of grants reaches 8000 dollars.
According to Elena, the CO “Legalife-Ukraine” organization also received help from the foundation – it saved sex workers from persecution.
“Hide the sex worker in a safe place; protect her from persecution of her husband, police, client; to transport to a safe place, to rent an apartment – these actions of the Urgent Action Fund help to save lives, ”says Elena.
“Our position is: do not save sex workers from sex work. We are against the so-called Swedish model. Punishing clients will deprive many sex workers of income and the ability to survive, ”sums up Elena.
