Women's Aid Organisation seeks your help in financial assistance for the rebuilding of our Child Care Centre, which in December 2016 was struck by lightning, caught fire and burned down. Fortunately, no one was harmed in the devastating event, as we had volunteers and neighbours who came in and immediately evacuated 12 of our child survivors. However, the damages to the Child Care Centre from the fire was substantial and we were unable to recover anything from it.
The Child Care Centre is used as a daycare and boarding for children, to help our survivors when they return to work. As childcare is expensive, it was a sensible development for WAO to provide this service for survivors as part of our holistic Resilience Programme to assist women in rebuilding their lives to become financially stable and independent. Child programmes such as tuition, art, music and a stable and safe environment free from violence was established to support child survivors of domestic violence to heal, perform better in school and re-integrate back into society.
The total cost of rebuilding our home which is a green building itself costs RM 2.25 million of which under the assistance of REHDA Youth has garnered RM 1.5 million. We are now appealing urgently for donations on the shortfall of RM 200,000 to complete the home, which is currently under construction up to the 1st floor.
Every little bit goes a long way and your financial contribution towards the rebuilding of our Child Care Centre will make a huge impact in the lives of these families -- by ensuring them access to a safe space to heal and grow into empowered individuals.
I hope the fundraiser will go smoothly!
