Attended A Meeting Of Brave & Dedicated Women Setting Up Refuge In Bangladesh

As Leprosy Mission's Ambassador To Ethnic Communities I was honored to be invited to a forum by Shakti Ethnic Women's Refuge to set up a similar group based in Bangladesh. 

These are women of courage and determination as some of the horrific,unbearable to see, violence against women images shown proved. 

The challenges to overcome religious/social/bureaucratic hurdles is immense but their will and the need can make it happen. Here are the fantastic women of the steering committee and my delightful host Sharmen.
