Shelters for abused men open in Switzerland

Zurich, Switzerland (GenevaLunch) - Two shelters for abused men are opening this week in German-speaking Switzerland, one near Aarau and the other near Zurich. The shelters are not connected in any way but both are primarily designed for men who have lost their homes and families after separations, says swissinfo, which carries a feature on the two new shelters. It focuses on the little-discussed problem of violence towards men, at home.
Cantonal groups to protect fathers’ rights are coordinated by an organization called Crop. One aspect of their work is helping fathers who find themselves in difficulties, often emotionally and financially, following a separation.
