Stories of hope and change

Every survivor has a story to tell.

A client recieves support from one of the Femili PNG caseworkers.

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.
