Community outreach

Shayal Devi
Tuesday, April 29, 2014

FOR non-government organisation Empower Pacific, extension of services across the country is a way to ensure the best counselling and social services reaches people from all walks of life.

After the opening of the nation's newest counselling centre in Lautoka, the NGO has now started a series of community outreach programs on Viti Levu and Vanua Levu.

"Our outreach programs aim to both inform and aid communities in dealing with issues of mental health, child protection or family violence," said CEO Patrick Morgam.

"We can also provide individual counselling where there is a need for personal support.

"Our services are fully professional and completely confidential."

According to Mr Morgam, the new Lautoka counselling centre funded by Australian Aid resulted in improvements in the services on offer.

"We now have room for group as well as individual counselling sessions."
