Urgent Help Needed for Women's Shelter

By Retreat for Kids

Please read this post in it's entirety, and please share with everyone you know.

"The Sanctuary Women Children and Pet's Refuge Retreat For Kids Inc." is struggling financially and need our urgent help. Situated in a secret location in the Gold Coast Hinterland, this is a retreat for victims of domestic violence with a difference. Not only do they take in women who have been injured through violence, but they also take in their children, and their pets. Some of the rooms are fully equipped to take in babies and children, and currently there are babies in care at the facility.

A relaxing atmosphere surrounded by animals such as goats, pigs, ducks and chickens, where the women are encouraged to interact with the animals who reside there by way of animal therapy. A professional team of Doctors, Psychologists and Social Workers are on hand to assist these women in their recovery at the Sanctuary, who are suffering both physical and emotional damage. This is a place for healing women and children, on the Gold Coast which currently has the highest rate of domestic violence in Australia.

They need your help to continue.

Many women will not leave a home situation because they fear leaving their pets behind, but at the Sanctuary, they are equipped to also take in their pets. Currently the Sanctuary is turning away approximately 15 women per day, and are calling on donations to add another 5 rooms to the property to house more women. This is an extremely important project, and it cannot be completed without some financial assistance. We are hoping to raise $40,000 to get new housing in so that we don't have to turn away so many women needing our help.

I cant imagine what is like to have nothing when leaving an abusive marriage. It is very tough even when you have a job and ways to do it alone. Please keep fighting for all those women.
