Among the first of its kind in the region, Women’s Crisis Care International in Bahrain is a vital center providing crisis services to women facing violence. Coordinated by Mary-Justine Todd, WCCI provides direct counseling and advocacy services to women in crisis, while also developing programming to help schools, hospitals, and other institutions develop the ability to identify and support women who are suffering from violence. This impact grant will help WCCI secure a community space from which they can support more women and develop their training programs.
