Napier Women’s Refuge Inc.

Napier Women’s Refugee Inc received $2,658 to purchase a new computer for the Refuge House to replace the current one which is old and cannot keep up with the speed, new software programs and internet required to get crucial tasks done.

The organisation helps around 200 women and their children each year escape from domestic violence situations, and in the last month alone they have assisted 34 families who were in need of immediate assistance.

The new computer is a valuable resource that will keep the Women’s Refuge running smoothly despite increased demand for the service, giving the organisation the ability to complete Ministry of Justice required statistics gathering programs and day to day office management.
