These stories of hope and change explain what our clients have experienced and how Femili PNG assisted them.
These stories demonstrate the impact of our services, and the positive effect that Femili PNG has had on the lives of our clients.
Clients give us permission to share their stories for many reasons: some want to inspire others to seek help and end the cycle of violence, others want to have their voice heard after many years of it being dismissed.
We are grateful to the survivors who have allowed us to share their stories with you.
This is the story of Kim and Ali*, two girls who suffered ongoing sexual abuse from their stepfather. With Femili PNG’s help they escaped violence and now live their lives safe from his abuse.
Clare* and her husband had a great marriage at first, but when she became pregnant he became very violent. With Femili PNG’s help, Clare was able to protect herself, and her baby with a court issued permanent protection order.
Rachael* was physically assaulted when she was accused of sorcery. Femili PNG worked with our partners to move her to a safe location and to have the perpetrators arrested.
Emily* and her children faced ongoing violence from Emily’s husband. Femili PNG helped them find safe accommodation while they began legal proceedings against her husband. With our support, her husband was forced to pay child support.
If you, or someone you know is experiencing family or sexual violence, Femili PNG may be able to assist. Please contact us.
