Hobart Women's Shelter (HWS) is closely monitoring developments concerning the coronavirus pandemic and is taking all necessary steps to ensure the wellbeing of our staff and the women and children who are currently being supported at HWS. During the past week, HWS has updated its policies and procedures as a further measure to stem the spread of the virus and to ensure the continuity of support and safety at the shelter. This means that unfortunately, we will be unable to accept goods donations until further notice. Financial donations will be greatly appreciated and can be made through our website https://hobartws.org.au/donate/ or via bank transfer (contact 6273 8455 or email@example.com for our bank details).
We are all watching the development of the coronavirus pandemic with feelings of concern and uncertainty. We are all in unknown territory and it's important that we remain calm, show solidarity and stand by each other at this difficult time. We will get through this together.
