Event description
IWAA has recently acquired Sakina House, a tranquil place of healing for women and children from CALD communities who are escaping DFV

About this Event

Established since 1991, IWAA’s key strength is its ability to collaborate with the community, business and other local agencies in order to host events and deliver programs that respond to new and emerging needs. It has won many awards for its innovative programs and excellent service delivery.

For over a decade, IWAA has focused on the primary prevention of violence against women, through research and respectful relationship workshops for participants as young as 12 years of age. In more recent times, IWAA has identified an urgent need to provide safe spaces for women and their children who need to remove themselves from the violence and abuse.

An organisation which had been operating in that space since 2014, Sakina Refuge Inc. could no longer sustain themselves; as a result, IWAA has taken acquisition of Sakina in order to continue to meet the needs of women and children in these predicaments. Sakina House is fully-funded by IWAA and receives no government funding.

We invite you to be part of Sakina House’s exciting launch. By purchasing a ticket, you will assist us in supporting vulnerable women and children who seek support at Sakina House.

If you would like to become a sponsor for this event, please get in touch with our office by phone, 07 3208 6333 or via email, admin@iwaa.org.au.
