Rissa Mohabir – Founder
” My passion for listening to others never ceases, especially the remarkable lived experiences of those whose lives have been shaken to the core, when conflict and violence erupts leaving unspeakable memories and how deeply this affects survivors , mentally emotionally and physically. That is the truth about trauma, this is the harsh reality about what it means to be a refugee, an asylum seeker, a person seeking safety and sanctuary. I am forever grateful to those that share their experiences to help us understand.”
