A huge thank you to the woman who shared her story with us for this video. We know how challenging this period can be for all those whose lives have been turned upside down by domestic abuse and sexual violence and we are determined to do all we can to bring some joy this Christmas.
This campaign has been set up to support Cyfannol Women’s Aid’s clients this Christmas. If the fundraising target is exceeded, donations will go to our general fund to support clients in 2021.
One of our biggest challenges is getting people to talk about domestic abuse and changing people’s perceptions of domestic abuse and violence against women.
You can help by:
- Telling women and children about Cyfannol Women’s Aid. We cannot help unless people know we are here.
- Asking for our leaflets for yourself, your friends or your workplace and display them prominently.
We are always in need of new essential items, such as nappies and store-cupboard food items, and you can get in touch to donate these to one of our centres.
