Told by Ivy, advocate in Islington.
“My service user fled from another area in England to stay with the only person she knew in the UK besides her abusive husband. She cannot speak any English, has no bank account or money of her own.
With the emergency fund we provided her with a voucher for a supermarket and clothes shop so she could buy essential items and food.
She could gain back some of her independence and confidence, and was able to buy the essential items she needed to start again.”
A donation to our Emergency Appeal could make the difference to a woman flees abuse with nothing. Change a life today.
