Since its establishment in 2008, Casa Raudha has kept faith in its mission to provide a safe haven and instil important life skills to victims of domestic violence. These victims - women and children - need a lot of support to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives and move forward. The generosity of our sponsors and community partners has enabled Casa Raudha to enhance their emotional, social and physical well-being.

There is still much to be done to confront the scourge of domestic violence. The act of a husband beating up his wife is a repulsive one. It has been reported that 70% of new cases of domestic violence each year were related to spousal violence. At the same time, more spouses are coming forward earlier to seek help compared to a decade ago. The victims come from all types of backgrounds irrespective of religion, race, educational levels or social status.

All these indicate that organisations like Casa Raudha have much more to do. At Casa Raudha, we provide a refuge for victims of domestic violence and abuse from all backgrounds. Within Casa Raudha's premises, these women and children have a safe and secure environment to help them cope and recover from their traumatic experiences.

In addition, Casa Raudha aims to prepare our beneficiaries for life after their recovery. This is done through programmes for the women that impart practical knowledge, upgrade their skills and build their confidence. The children also participate in activities that support their psychological, moral and academic development.

On behalf of all our beneficiaries, I also wish to express my highest appreciation to all our donors, partners, volunteers and staff for their continued involvement and support to Casa Raudha. I am also heartened by the progress made by Casa Raudha thus far.

I hope that you are inspired by Casa Raudha's mission. The thrust of this mission is important to foster an inclusive society and ensure that no one is left behind. Casa Raudha is built on your kindness, generosity and support. In turn, all these are channelled towards rebuilding the lives of Casa Raudha's beneficiaries. I invite you to help Casa Raudha in any way you can.

Thank you.
