In collaboration with the HEAL (Helping End Abuse for Life) Network, MIAG delivered nine workshops during the past fiscal year about women abuse and children who witness abuse. The workshops were conducted in different languages such as Arabic, Urdu and English. The objective of these workshops was to raise awareness on the im¬pact of abuse on women and children. Those needing assistance are referred to HEAL programs and services. Tips on building healthy family relationships were shared as well as how to enhance family life and improve positive parenting.
The workshops were held in a safe zone for women and men to share their experiences. It’s a step forward in assessing their lives and seeking support when they need it. About 130 women and men from different ethno-cultural communities participated in the workshops.
