Domestic violence forces too many women to make desperate choices. For two frightening years, Leah and Charlotte lived in their car and spent their days in parks because they had nowhere else to go.
Thankfully, Leah connected with Vinnies volunteers, Frank and Narelle, who were able to secure her and Charlotte a place at a refuge. They then helped Leah and Charlotte get back on their feet and into their own home.
“Vinnies saved my life,” said Leah.
Tragically, the number of women experiencing domestic and family violence has increased significantly in the past two years, leaving many emergency refuges and support services unable to cope.
Your gift this Winter will provide the emergency accommodation and material assistance needed for women and children like Leah and Charlotte to escape the danger and rebuild their lives.
