The year in review
As 2016 draws to a close, we take this opportunity to thank all of our partners, donors and friends. Your support has allowed us to make a real difference to the lives of survivors of family and sexual violence in Papua New Guinea.
Our annual report for 2015-16 is now available online, read the highlights here or download the full report here.

Over the past few months we have been working closely with Trukai Industries in Lae. In November we headed out to Trukai Industries’ farm at Erap in the Markham Valley to raise awareness on family and sexual violence among Trukai staff. Read the story here. Trukai Industries now also supports Femili PNG and our clients by providing rice to women and children in emergency accommodation. Thank you Trukai!
