Shakti is a organisation that supports women, youth and children experiencing domestic violence, specifically from Asian, Middle Eastern and African communities. They have launched a crowdfunding campaign for the international 16 Days of Activism campaign to support the immediate survival of Shakti Wellington Refuge, which is near closure after 5 years of negotiations with the Ministry of Social Development to be given more government funding. Mengzhu Fu is the National Youth Co-ordinator for the organisation and Lillian Hanly spoke to them to find out more about the campaign as well as the organisation itself. Lillian started by asking how Shakti started.
