The Network of Western Balkans Women's Organizations draws the attention of the decision makers on the importance of state funding for specialized women's NGOs, both in crisis and in regular circumstances, because they provide services that are lacking in a comprehensive system of protection and support for women survivors of violence.

These organizations adapt to the new circumstances much faster than institutions and therefore remain available to women survivors of violence. They also provide an alternative for women who either don’t want to report violence to institutions or have not received adequate support from them. The specificity of these services is that they provide the possibility of anonymous calling.
