|Mission||To provide an affordable healing environment for women in need to rehabilitate and integrate. Women's retreat.|
Women In Need is an initiative to help provide healing and rehabilitation, with an emphasis on affordable accommodation, for refugee women and children and women in need of retreat – in a warm and compassionate environment.
There is a dire need for affordable accommodation for women in crisis and refugees. There is also a lack of adequate services for healing for refugees, women in crisis and women on low incomes who are wanting to retreat to heal from the stresses of modern life. Furthermore, resettlement, integrating new pathways, transformation and change require time and a conducive environment.
As a holistic counsellor I see the struggles women face in integrating new awarenesses and overcoming trauma in their healing path. The week to week counselling has its benefits and helps to manage anxieties and sadnesses in a slow and long term counseling model but the integrating process requires more of a lived experience . Having to tackle the everyday issues of housing, finances and relational challenges impedes and sometimes exacerbates the issues in the healing process.
