Lesley Young - Crisis Centre AdviserView Profile
Established in October 2009, the Women and Children Crisis Centre (WCCC) was pioneered by a group of women and some male advocate supporters. The group was determined to develop an NGO that efficiently and professionally delivers quality support services to victims and survivors of violence against women and girls throughout Tonga.
The WCCC’s core mandate is to provide free counselling and support services, with the Mo’ui Ke Fiefia Safe House providing 24 hour temporary safe housing to women and children who are survivors of violence. The staff are driven by their passion and determination, particularly as the WCCC’s core work focus is based on the experiences and lived stories of the women and children that have been clients of the WCCC.
