Fiji's toll free abuse hotline sees flood of calls

From , 6:02 am on 13 March 2017

More women from Fiji's remoter islands are calling in to report abuse after the launch of a toll free domestic violence hotline last week.

While the Fiji Women's Crisis Centre has run a hotline for more than thirty years, calls are now free after a deal struck with Fiji's phone companies and the government.

The Crisis Centre's Shamima Ali told Sally Round  the free calling number is obviously making a difference.
