Nazir Afzal OBE

“Savera means new beginnings and the people Savera helps know exactly what that means. They are rescued from hopeless and desperate abusive relationships, or from families who are determined to harm them through forced marriage or FGM, and given hope, help and a home. These victims and survivors are the least likely in the UK to seek help because of issues such as honour and culture…It is my privilege to be Savera’s Patron, I can think of no better way of showing my admiration for the work they do and the lives they save.”
