WOMEN'S AID ORGANISATION

  • In 1982, the Women's Aid Organisation (WAO) established Malaysia's first shelter for women and children who are affected by domestic violence. WAO also provides counselling and crisis support to survivors. The organisation helps women and children rebuild their lives, after experiencing domestic violence, rape, trafficking, and other atrocities. Learning from women’s and children’s experiences, WAO advocates to improve public policies, reform response systems and shift public attitudes.
  • The Child Care Centre (CCC) is a home for the children of WAO's ex-residents who have decided to live independently. It aims to help children to get over the hurdle of violence by providing a comfortable environment and nurturing needs. Children are given a home, education at local schools and a support system to meet their physical, mental and emotional needs.
  • We are currently supporting CCC by providing a committed monetary donation for 3 years starting 2015. CCC has provided shelter to a total of 60 children during the period of support.
  • In 2017, we have also extended our support to two projects focusing on raising awareness on the issues of domestic violence - an art exhibit named "Harapan Sentiasa Ada" at the Masjid Jamek LRT station and an illustrated book on Tina's Journey: A collection of words and poetry by survivors of domestic violence.
