Denga Ilave summarises her recent trip to Australia to speak on Femili PNG's work.
Femili PNG is a local NGO based in Lae that runs a Case Management Centre (CMC) to assist survivors of family and sexual violence to access the services they need.
Femili PNG Board Chair Stephen Howes writes on his trip to Lae in November 2014, where he saw the successes of the Case Management Centre so far, and the challenging environment in which it operates.
We are excited to report that Australia’s Minister for Foreign Affairs Julie Bishop has announced $3 million of funding over three years from the Australian aid program to establish the Papua New Guinea Family and Sexual Violence Case Management Centre (CMC), based in Lae.
Papua New Guinea (PNG) has epidemic levels of family and sexual violence (FSV) directed against women and children. A case management centre (CMC) will promote individual case management and inter-sectoral coordination to better assist survivors to access services, support and justice.
