Independent women, LGBT+ activists are facing not only difficult cases requiring full commitment but also a lot of pressure from governments creating new challenges for them. Activists’ work is usually linked to the persecution, life threats and risks, the work itself connected with other people’s traumas. All this work causes high phycological involvement and burnout as a side-effect. The Femdacha supports activists proposing one-month temporary relocation for the rest and recharging in Podmoskovie.
