IKWRO’s clients say:
IKWRO is like my family. Whenever I have a problem, I will turn to them. They are my only family that I have got and can trust.
IKWRO saved my life and my daughter from violence and indignity. I lived with a very violent and abusive husband for three years suffering imprisonment and torture. I suffered alone and in silence. He told me that I will be deported if anyone knew about me. I didn’t know anything and I was afraid of everyone. I had no where to go. I didn’t know anyone, had no any money, couldn’t speak a word of English and had a very young baby daughter.
I couldn’t bear any more. After he raped and beat me up, he walked out. I took my baby and ran out into the street crying. I saw a police officer and all I could say was ‘help!’ They called IKWRO. At first I was too scared to talk, but the very kind voice on the other end made me feel better and I opened my heart to IKWRO’s advisor.
It was then I began to feel the light in the tunnel. They helped me to find safe accommodation, sorted out my income, helped me apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain, and I am now starting English classes … and the most important thing is that I have my lovely daughter who is now walking and talking. I’ve got my confidence back.
I will teach her to become a strong woman. Thank you IKWRO!
