Fabulous 1940s Tea – Caring for Camellia House

Only one women’s refuge in North Island is geared towards caring for disabled women and children from a domestic violence background.

Camellia House provides safe accommodation, meals and transport to attend appointments, WINZ, CYFS, Family Lawyers, Court appearances and transport children to new and safe school environment. Emotional support found in these safe houses is just as important.

Soroptimist International Auckland Inc is currently supporting Camellia House by way of donations in kind and specific needs. Their computer system has been upgraded. Other pressing needs include a Van for transport as mentioned above and 1 or 2 industrial washers and dryers.

Soroptimist International is a vibrant, dynamic organization for today’s professional and business women. We are committed to a world where women and girls together achieve their individual and collective potential, realize aspirations and have an equal voice in creating strong, peaceful communities worldwide.
