About Suana


kargah e.V. starts its advisory services for migrants and refugees.

The mid 90s
The number of female refugees and migrants, who are seeking advice at SUANA due to domestic violence, is increasing significantly. This increasing need for advise shows the lack of institutions and counseling centres for female migrants in Hanover.

At the end of the 90s
Through a 3 year measure, subsidized by the employment office, SUANA is able to make a small contribution to a better social-educational counseling of these women. SUANA also gains a better intercultural specialist expertise and social competence.

Since 2001
SUANA is dedicated to this work, thankfully supported  by the government aid.

Since December 2005
SUANA is the counseling and intervention centre (BISS) for female migrants, affected by domestic violence. This means, that SUANA is contacting proactively female migrants affected by domestic violence.

Number of female visitors

Female migrants and refugees are affected by domestic violence particularly bad (“Life situation, security and health of women in Germany”; the Federal Ministry for Families, Senior Citizens, Women and Youths, 2010, 3rd edition). In their study, also the counseling and interventions centres in Lower Saxony (BISS) came to the conclusion that 27% of the women, who are registered by counseling centres, have a migration background (“Against domestic violence with BISS”; the Lower Saxony Ministry for Social Issues, Women, Family and Health & KFN, April 2005). The number of female visitors from 2007 to 2010 is shown in the table below.
