Stories of hope and change

Rose’s story


Rose* was physically and sexually abused by her husband. Femili PNG assisted her by moving her to a safe house and provided food and clothing while she was there. A Femili PNG Case Worker assisted Rose with family tracing and to access other needed services such as medical check-up and attaining a Permanent Protection Order for 2 years from the Court.

Rose verbally explained to the Case Worker that she no longer wanted to continue her relationship and requested to return home to her family where she would be safe. Upon her wish, the Case Worker assisted her and she was successfully repatriated and reunited with her family in her home province. She was assisted with a start-up kit and reintegration support to help her with her relocation.

Rose was very grateful and appreciated the support and assistance provided to her by Femili PNG and other service providers.
