Many women who stayed at Women’s Healing Sanctuary during 2022 had little or zero capacity to contribute financially towards their stay.  These women were enduring overwhelming circumstances, so we gifted them an Angel Stay and welcomed them to our Sanctuary for the much-needed respite they yearned for.  Many were barely able to comprehend that depth of compassion.  We can’t change their circumstances, but we can make a difference to how they cope with them.

There are many more women who would be overwhelmed with gratitude to discover they’ve been gifted some respite from their distressing situations.

You could be the reason for that depth of gratitude in this season of giving!


You can help us increase the number of women we are able to gift sponsored stays in 2023.

We know Christmas can be a time of fun, family and food, but we also know it can be a time of loneliness, grief and despair.

May your Christmas offer you moments of connectedness, love and surprise.
