In our last Newsletter, we brought you an update on the development of our Emergency Safe-house Shelter Accommodation and today, we we are delighted to report that thanks to your continued support, the shelter is now up and running!

Since opening it's doors back in April this year, our Emergency Safe-house Shelter has provided a total of 347 nights of safety to vulnerable and abused children, in the shape of our comforting rooms, cosy beds and caring round-the-clock support team. In our first month of operation, the shelter provided 23 bed spaces, increasing to 60 during May and reaching 93 in August! These figures speak for themselves in demonstrating just how much this service has been needed. Once again our thanks go out to every one of our supporters, who helped to provide funds to start up this facility and to those who contribute regularly to keep it up and running.
