Jerry Guirguis interview Gabrielle Fakhri, Live-to-air from the studio of 96.5FM – Egyptian radio program [ Monday 25th Nov 2013, Melbourne-Australia ].


6:15pm – Our 1st special guest tonight is Gabrielle Fakhri, Cultural Consultant and Trainer, talking about Domestic Violence,


Women have the right to live free from fear and violence.  Domestic violence is a crime.

Many women are subjected to violence and abuse from their husbands, partners and in some cases other family members.


One in five women will be affected by family violence at some time during their life.  Women from all walks of life, from every ethnicity and religion experience violence and abuse from people they know and love. Yet the problem is often overlooked, excused or denied.    This is especially true when the abuse is psychological rather than physical.  Noticing and acknowledging the sign of an abusive relationship is the first step to ending it.  No one should live in fear of the person they love.

With over 30 years experience working with asylum seekers and refugees,  Mrs. Fakhri, a cultural trainer, her professional services include, conducting helpful directions for women groups all around Victoria, these sessions have been run & facilitated for service providers and various Arabic organisations.

There’s a lot we’ll be covering tonight with Mrs. Fakhri, one pressing & urgent concern, has been about these newly settled wives in Australia, with family & domestic violence and are too afraid to call for help, thinking, they will not be allowed to remain to stay and live freely in Australia.
