How this helps

“With the loss of my right hand, it was really difficult. But the support from this organisation really helped me. For counselling purposes, and also, because I got the [prosthetic] hand.”

— Mama Rasta, violence survivor, Papua New Guinea

Mama Rasta was accused of practising sorcery and mobbed by several men in her community. After the clash, an assailant broke into Mama Rasta’s home and severed her hand with a bush knife.

The threat of violence is a daily reality for many women and girls living in Papua New Guinea. But Oxfam is working to change this by providing women and girls who are threatened by violence with crisis accommodation, legal advice, counselling and access to healthcare services.
