Several Filipinas experiencing domestic violence were able to flee from their abusive partners

Gabriela Australia's Ness Gavanzo says that Filipinas on temporary visas were unable to access support services during the COVID-19 Pandemic  


Highlights

  • Limited allocation of funds were made available for support services 
  • The funds are subject for review every financial year 
  • Due to the restrictions in place as a result of the COVID-19, women on temporary visas have difficulty accessing support services

 'The allocation of funds is recognition of the need for equal access for services but since the funding isn't on-going  proves that there is still a huge gap' Ness Gavanzo, Gabriel Australia
