In 1982, the Women's Aid Organisation (WAO) established Malaysia's first counselling centre and shelter for women and children who have been victims of domestic abuse. WAO offers shelter, telephone counselling and face-to-face counselling for hundreds of women every year.
Child Care Centre (CCC) is a centre 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 July 2015. From July till December 2015, CCC has sheltered a total of 19 children.
