Supporting women and children who have experienced domestic abuse.

We will always be mindful that domestic abuse is a direct result of the general position of women in our society and perpetrators decisions to meet their own needs without negotiation because they believe that they are entitled to. Domestic Abuse is a breach of Human Rights.
