We have just sent £1306 to the Women’s Empowerment Centre in Damak located in the eastern Terai region of Nepal. The Terai is the flat southern strip of Nepal along the border with India. Most tourists go for the mountains so Damak does not benefit from the revenue generated by tourist-related activities. The Women’s Empowerment Centre provides refuge and support to abused women and their children, and those with mental health problems. The money HELP has sent comes from our sponsors and other benefactors, and will be used for the benefit of six children, and to pay for the rent of a safe house.
Currently.15 abused women and 2 with mental health problems are being given refuge in the safe house. They are accommodated for short periods of 15 days to one month.
