An Evening with Nahid Sewell  – Friday, September 15th – 5pm to 7pm

August 14th, 2017

Join VWTH and supporters at the Victoria Golf Club for a book reading and presentation from Nahid Sewell, author of “The Ruby Tear Catcher”.

There will be wine and nibbles, a Q & A period following the reading and discussion, as well as a silent auction and door prizes.

In her words:
“Though I risked homeland to write this book, I’d hoped to transport readers to Persia, the land of blue-tiled mosques, saffron rice and kabob and bazaars filled with merchants selling anything from spices to Persian rugs. I wanted to share the beauty of my culture and the warmth of my people. But I also wanted to expose how poorly women are treated in the Middle East and help empower women and girls. Using the tear catcher as a symbol, I draw parallels between Christianity and Islam. My hope is for readers to understand that we are all the same and should embrace, not discriminate against those who don’t fit our mold. Most importantly, I want to give a voice to my sisters in the Middle East.” – Nahid Sewell

Tickets to the event can be purchased from the Victoria Golf Club and copies of “The Ruby Tear Catcher” may be purchase from VWTH by calling Emily at 250-592-2927 ext 213 or e-mailing emilyc@vwth.bc.ca.

VWTH Compassionate Pet Boarding Program

July 7th, 2017

Victoria Women’s Transition House (VWTH) is excited to launch a Compassionate Pet Boarding Program for the pets of women and children fleeing domestic violence and abuse. While we know that there is a link between domestic abuse and animal abuse, VWTH does not have the means to house companion animals at our Emergency Shelter. This leaves many women facing the difficult decision to either leave their pets behind or remain in the abusive environment. Sadly, many victims stay in an abusive home for fear of subjecting their pets to continued abuse, if left behind. Equally disturbing, animals are often left with their abusers to face torture or even death.

 

Women in an abusive home with pets may not leave their abuser because:

  1. They often cannot take their pet into a shelter with them and their children and;
  2. They worry for their pet’s safety if they proceed to a shelter and leave their pet in an abusive home.

Knowing a woman’s concern for the pet, an abusive partner may use this against her – threatening or abusing the animal directly.

VWTH wants to eliminate as many barriers as possible to help women to make change in their lives and to leave an abusive partner. To help with this, we want to launch the VWTH Compassionate Pet Boarding Program in partnership with our local SPCA.

To support this initiative, you can make an online donation or call our Community Office at 250.592.2927.
