Charity furnishing homes for people fleeing domestic violence

post-image

With domestic violence cases rising in Australia, services are struggling to meet the demand for crisis accommodation. One not-for-profit is doing what it can for those often fleeing with nothing.

Manuela Whitford and her husband Darrell are loading a van with donated goods at a small warehouse south of Brisbane.

Darrell will drive the furniture and household items to what they call 'sanctuaries' – rented homes where people who have fled domestic violence can restart their lives.

It’s all thanks to her not-for-profit Friends with Dignity, which has so far delivered $8 million worth of goods to abuse survivors across Australia.
