Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment, and Sport, Olivia Grange, says that work continues towards the opening of two shelters for victims of gender-based violence, during the current financial year.
She was making her contribution to the 2021/2022 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives on June 8.
The establishment of national shelters for women who need help to leave violent relationships has been one of the priority programmes of the Ministry. The first facility was opened in the last financial year.
Ms. Grange said the Ministry is also improving helpline services for women and men who need assistance.
