Women & War
In our work towards the liberation of women and children, we have come to recognize how difficult it is to start a different life in a new country, especially when you do not have anyone to help and support you. Adjusting to a new language, a new culture and a new way of living can be tough and isolating.
We have been supporting survivors of violence for approximately twenty-five years. Our approach is survivor-directed, which means our information comes from women directly. We believe that women are the experts in their lives and can make the right choices for themselves and their families.
