Now, both her children have completed tertiary education and are financially independent. Her daughter is married. Home is a fully-paid 3 room HDB flat. Ivy reiterated that her family is in this better state because of the care and support from Marymount Centre. She is grateful that the management and staff empowered her to stand up for her rights as a woman and journeyed with her to build a new life for her family, free from fear and danger.
Ivy wants to share this message with women who are trapped in the cycle of family violence - "There are people who will help you to break free and be safe. Don't be afraid, they will support you all the way."
Marymount Centre operates a crisis shelter for abused women and their children, who often turn up with only the clothes on their backs. From January to October 2018, more than 30 women and their families have turned up at our doors. You can partner us in ending violence against women and girls by giving a donation.
We are grateful for your generosity.
