In 1982, Women's Aid Organisation (WAO) established Malaysia's first shelter for women and children who are affected by domestic violence. Today, it is one of the leading domestic violence shelter, re-integration and case management service providers in the country. 

WAO provides crisis response and holistic services to an average of 3,000 women and children each year, supporting them through the challenge of evolving from domestic violence victims into empowered survivors. The organisation advocates to improve public policies, reform response systems and shift public attitudes.

WEN Giving through Selangor Properties Berhad supports WAO’s Child Care Centre; a facility for the children of WAO’s ex-residents who have decided to live independently. The Centre provides them with a home, education at a local school and a support system to meet the child’s physical, mental and emotional needs when the mother is away working. The Child Care Centre helps children exposed to domestic violence by providing a comfortable environment and nurturing the needs of each child.

From 2018 to 2020, Wen Giving will partner WAO to support its Social Work which is managed by a dedicated team of full time Social Workers. WAO’s Social Work ensures police action and perpetrator accountability, sources legal representation, and provides individual case advocacy to enhance survivors’ access to health and other public services.

Burns Violence Survivors, Nepal

Burns are amongst the most painful, horrific and costly injuries a person can suffer. In Nepal, approximately 56,000 people are inflicted with new burn injuries every year.

BVS-Nepal is a not-for-profit, non-government organisation which supports survivors with burns resulting from accidents or violence; especially homicide attacks (with kerosene and acid) and suicides fuelled by domestic violence.

Burns are amongst the most painful, horrific and costly injuries a person can suffer. In Nepal, approximately 56,000 people are inflicted with new burn injuries every year.

BVS-Nepal is a not-for-profit, non-government organisation which supports survivors with burns resulting from accidents or violence; especially homicide attacks (with kerosene and acid) and suicides fuelled by domestic violence. BVS conducts nutrition programmes, counselling, physiotherapy, medical and surgical support, medical equipment for hospitals, prevention and awareness programmes as well as rehabilitation programmes.

In 2013, WEN Giving supported BVS with bedside monitors for three hospitals along with physiotherapy materials and a TV and video player with videos for the ward. These benefited an average of 300 burns patients.  In 2016, WEN Giving will support 16 ‘street dramas’ run by BVS. These promote the message that prevention is better than cure; and will have a direct and indirect impact on more than 3,000 people.

WEN Giving met again with BVS in 2017 and agreed to support an ICU bed in the Burns Unit of the main teaching hospital, Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital in Kathmandu.  Since the start of its operation in January 2018, 41 patients have been admitted, 12 of whom were critical.  As this new facility is based in the teaching hospital it makes care affordable for patients from a low socio-economic background that would otherwise not be able to afford hospital fees.  It also means that critical patients no longer have to be transferred to other hospitals.  

Awareness Cambodia – Operational Nightingale and Chendra, Cambodia

In 2006, Australian-based Awareness Cambodia established Operation Nightingale; a medical program to service the poorest province of Cambodia, Kompong Speu which is 75km east of Phnom Penh. Most of the patients they treat are impoverished and already fighting to overcome challenges associated with illiteracy and poor nutrition before they come in with medical issues. As well as employing well-trained Cambodian doctors and medical staff to deliver community health care, the program...

In 2006, Australian-based Awareness Cambodia established Operation Nightingale; a medical program to service the poorest province of Cambodia, Kompong Speu which is 75km east of Phnom Penh. Most of the patients they treat are impoverished and already fighting to overcome challenges associated with illiteracy and poor nutrition before they come in with medical issues. As well as employing well-trained Cambodian doctors and medical staff to deliver community health care, the program provides an annual visit from International Medical Team Volunteers to offer more extensive medical services and sought-after skills. 

WEN Giving through Hawaiian donated a 4WD vehicle and paid for its running costs to assist doctors travelling to rural and remote areas to undertake breast and cervical cancer screening for women, thereby saving countless lives.

Hamro Birthing Centre, Nepal

The idea of a birthing centre was first proposed in 2011 when it was realised that women were still delivering their babies at home without the support of skilled birth attendants.

Public Health Development Nepal and WEN Giving created a 15-bed private birthing centre in Kathmandu. It opened in January 2012, and provides free care and a safe environment for all women to deliver their babies. The centre is run by Nepalese-trained midwives and birth attendants.

The idea of a birthing centre was first proposed in 2011 when it was realised that women were still delivering their babies at home without the support of skilled birth attendants.

Public Health Development Nepal and WEN Giving created a 15-bed private birthing centre in Kathmandu. It opened in January 2012, and provides free care and a safe environment for all women to deliver their babies. The centre is run by Nepalese-trained midwives and birth attendants. When the mother and newborn are discharged, they’re given information on breastfeeding, motherhood and baby care. Any complicated deliveries are referred to the appropriate health and medical facilities as appropriate. To date, the birthing centre has cared for and delivered over 300 babies.

Maternal & Child Health Clinic, Nepal

Public Health Development Nepal saw the need for a maternal and child health clinic in Kathmandu because Nepalese women do not recognise the importance of antenatal care and many are still delivering babies at home. This is particularly prevalent in Kathmandu’s slum communities where women are often unable to access the necessary care because of a lack of funds to get to the facility and the inability to take time off work.

Public Health Development Nepal saw the need for a maternal and child health clinic in Kathmandu because Nepalese women do not recognise the importance of antenatal care and many are still delivering babies at home. This is particularly prevalent in Kathmandu’s slum communities where women are often unable to access the necessary care because of a lack of funds to get to the facility and the inability to take time off work.

WEN Giving, together with the Kathmandu Municipality Council and Public Health Development in Nepal, has helped set up a maternal and child health clinic in Ward 34. Opened in June 2010, the clinic’s primary aim is to provide free antenatal and postnatal care. In addition, the clinic’s staff educate mothers on birth preparedness and pregnancy complications. Other locals are also cared for by the staff. More than 4,000 patients have attended the clinic for other medical treatments since July 2011 making it a substantial contributor to health and wellness in this most impoverished area of Kathmandu.
