Karma Nirvana, in partnership with Safe Newcastle, hosted the second annual Day of Memory conference in Newcastle.   Survivors born and raised in Britain shared their experiences of honour-based abuse, and gave personal testimonies of rape, family abuse, abduction and attempted suicides to a deeply moved audience. Karma Nirvana announced their first high profile male patron.

“I am proud to give my support to Karma Nirvana; the work they do is essential and urgently needed. We must all open our eyes and mind to prevent abuse”.  Bobby Friction, BBC Asian Network
