Emergency Funding, the Power of Choice for Survivors of Abuse

In this short video, ICMC Malaysia’s Carmen Low describes the impact of the emergency funding program for sexual and gender-based violence survivors.

By offering survivors a reprieve, Low explains, “we essentially give them a power of choice,” so they don’t have to return to their abusers because they lack financial means. “When emergency funding comes in,” she says, they can focus “on prioritizing their own safety, on creating a concrete plan for their future.”
