The center provides medical, legal and psychosocial support services, informative talks developed with womens’ demands, art and sport activities. There are child-friendly spaces to ensure that women are joining these activities without any concern.

Some women offered the cake and biscuits to both their friends and guests. The open office event attended by nearly 200 guests took its place among Womens’ Consultation and Solidarity Center’s works, as a joyous day full of exchange.
