About Us

The Fiji Women’s Crisis Centre (FWCC) provides crisis counselling and legal, medical and other practical support services for women and children who are sufferers and survivors of violence committed against them by men.

The FWCC is well known and respected in international circles and its work is enhanced by participation in global networks of women working against violence.
