Ambassador visits emergency home for women and children

Last updated: 28.01.2014 // With UN Women, Ambassador Nordgaard visited the Association for the Promotion of the Status of Women emergency home in Bangkok.

The Association for the Promotion of the Status of Women (APSW) is a non-profit, charitable organization provides assistance to women and children who are victims of prostitution, rape, HIV/AIDS, unemployment, abandonment, domestic violence and physical and mental abuse.

Their emergency home has provided assistance, shelter and rehabilitation to more than 45 000 women and children from around Thailand. In November Ambassador Katja Nordgaard visited the emergency home along with other ambassadors and the UN Women, getting insight in the home’s operations.

The APSW emergency home mainly operates on donations, and contributions can be given through their web pages.
