THE Seif Ples Gender Based Violence (GBV) crisis accommodation and medical clinic at Rove is temporarily closed, says SAFENET.
SAFENET this week advised general public that Seif Ples centre will be temporarily closed until Saturday, June 19, 2021.
“During this time if you require emergency shelter, please contact the Police on 999 or go to Christian Care Center. If you need medical help for sexual assault, rape or sexual and reproductive health, please contact Solomon Islands Planned Parenthood Association (SIPPA) or go to nearest Honiara City Council Clinic and the National Referral Hospital.”
Seif Ples Gender-Based Violence Crisis and Referral Centre offers a comprehensive first response service for victim-survivors of sexual and gender-based violence in the Solomon Islands. The vision of Seif Ples is to build a future Solomon Islands free from sexual and gender-based violence.
SAFENET is a referral network of gender-based violence support services, coordinated by the Ministry Women, Youth, Children and Family Affairs. It aims to ensure that survivors of gender-based violence can access the support services they need, when they need it.
