These stories span three decades. Once a call is received, Niswa responds by determining what is needed and then by providing the appropriate help. The length of Niswa’s involvement in each case depends on the needs of the client’s situation. Usually domestic abuse cases require assistance from six months to upto two years. Large proportion of Niswa clients are immigrant women.
The stories are many and the telling of them is sad. More often then not the end is better than the beginning of the story. We encourage everyone in the community to seek help sooner rather than later. Respect and care is a responsibility of all parties involved to ensure a healthy, nurturing and happy environment for a strong family.
