It always blows my mind how many women are still affected by domestic violence; so many women feel like they have no choice other than to stay in situations that do not serve them; they are afraid and believe the lies that have been told to them. I was introduced to Suzy's Place by Naz Shah who in turn introduced me to Arshia Hasnain who is one of the partners of Suzy's Place; Shahida Khan is also a partner along with Robyn Dessaure who is one of the Board Members.
These four ladies are doing great things with Suzy's Place that officially opened up in July 2017; right now they have 5 beds that are being used by women who are victims of domestic violence. They are looking to help as many women as they can to be empowered along with getting the education that they need to keep moving forward in their lives. These ladies are amazing, the love and compassion they have for these women along with the determination to help these women see how powerful they truly are is breath taking.
