Emergency Support Centers for Migrant Women
The center first opened in November of 2006 in an effort to support women’s safety and human rights protection. It provides 24 hour, 7 days a week, 365 days a year emergency support services to all foreign women -regardless of nationality, within South Korea. The main center in Seoul is run and staffed entirely by women.
In addition to the main center in Seoul, there are currently 6 satellite centers (see list below). These satellite centers are currently only open from Monday to Friday, from 09:00 to 18:00. Outside of these times, all calls made to these centers are automatically forwarded to the main center in Seoul.
Each emergency support center provides the following services, free of charge:
1. Telephone and in-person counseling services in 11 languages (Korean, Vietnamese, Chinese, English, Tagalog, Russian, Thai, Mongolian, Cambodian, Uzebek, and Japanese) *Please note that support in any given language is dependent upon the presence of a speaker of that language at the time you call.
2. Emergency shelter services: There is one room on-site for immediate emergencies only, and the center will re-locate you to one of the emergency women’s shelters within Seoul - designated specifically for foreign women, who have been victims of family violence, sexual assault and prostitution.
3. Couple and family conflict resolution (telephone and in-person)
4. Legal counseling
