2017 Pitch
Funds raised: $29,310

WCHM pitched in Canberra on the 21st September and raised $28,310 that will support a new sustainable micro-finance facility (Assistance Beyond Crisis), which has been developed in response to the researched needs of local women who have escaped domestic violence situations. The facility will provide victims with a one-off no interest loan to establish short-term financial stability and access to financial counselling.
