Femili PNG’s work on FSV featured by The Guardian
By Ashlee Betteridge
The work of Femili PNG, which Devpolicy supports on a pro-bono basis, was featured by The Guardian newspaper this week, after reporter Helen Davidson visited Lae and met with staff and clients.
Femili PNG runs a Case Management Centre to assist survivors of family and sexual violence in Lae to access the services they need.
Two powerful stories in The Guardian feature Femili PNG’s work with local safe houses and other partners and document the challenging experiences of clients, describing how case management has helped them as they try to make a fresh start against the odds.
