First migrant safehouse opens in Wellington

Sep 23rd, 2014 | By | Category: Radio News

A SHAKTI safehouse for migrant and refugee women opened in Wellington this week.

Shakti is an international organisation campaigning to end violence and discrimination against migrants.

The safehouse offers culturally appropriate services for Asian, African and Middle Eastern women and is funded by public donations.

Pollyanne Peῆa, from Shakti, says it has taken almost three years to get the local safehouse opened.

To support Shakti go to www.shakti-international.org/shakti-nz and click on the Donate button.
