In April of this year IKWRO and Karma Nirvana established an ‘honour’-based violence (HBV) helpline, the only one of its kind. The helpline has proved to be a success, with hundreds of calls every week. Yet the service is now under threat from a lack of funding, and so Karma Nirvana have launched a petition to try and secure public money.
There is something fundamentally wrong with a system that spends over Â£600 billion and manages to wastes many billions, but can’t find the money to fund an important service for some of the weakest people in our society.
