Currently there are 26 women with severe mental health problem resides in our safe home. In the SH we have women and girls were refered found on the streets and those abandoned by families and communities.
We work to rebuild their lost hope and also regain a sense of a purpose and joy in life. Through protection, treatment and counseling, they feel a little safer. They learn to socialize and enjoy the company of the group members and staff.
From 2013 to 2017 total 106 women and their children have received comprehensive rehabilitation services so they are enjoying their life with their families and friends. Usually around 15 to 20 women are living in the SH.
