For Survivors Of Domestic Abuse In Papua New Guinea, Volunteers Offer Safe Havens

Volunteer advocates in Papua New Guinea are trained by the United Nations to be human rights defenders and are crucial links for women facing abuse to help them navigate through legal proceedings to get protection. In a country where many officials are bribed and women have few resources to get help, the defenders are usually their only route to escape. It's dangerous work but when it works by coordinating many sectors it's effective.
