For more than half a century, Sisters Incorporated has been assisting and caring for women and children from abusive homes.
The organisation in Kenilworth, established 60 years ago, was given a boost by the Soong Ching Ling Foundation with a donation of food and other necessities.
The organisation houses nearly 30 women and their children. Soong Ching Ling chairperson Chen Qing and others from the foundation were taken on a tour. “The organisation looks good, I watched what they do, saw the skills they are taught and I am impressed. The rooms are clean and tidy, it’s very good.
“We heard that they need help and we decided to buy food and to support them. We hope that we can continue to help them in the future.”
Delene Roberts has been with the organisation for five years and said the shelter was more like a home.
