A huge thank you to Quota International of Papakura Club and Quota International of Auckland Club for their generous and kind support in providing care packages for some of our Crisis Response Service clients who have experienced sexual harm. The thoughtfulness and care that has gone into creating these packages is so appreciated and will help bring some comfort to vulnerable victims of sexual harm during such challenging circumstances.
