Yasmina, 32 years old, quit school at the age of 15 and left home because of domestic violence. Later she had 2 children and once again she and her eldest daughter became victims of severe domestic violence. 21% of the population in Bulgaria is at risk of poverty, with an ‘at risk of poverty’ income threshold of 109 Euros per month. Yasmina fled and searched for help, and ended up in the ‘Mother and Child’ centre, a social service managed by the Bulgarian NGO SAPI, which offers food, shelter and a wide range of social and psychological assistance for a period of 6 months. Today, Yasmina has left the centre and is trying to get her life back on track.
