Friend of Desperate Housewives
by Ziana Qaiser Bookmark and Share
The issue of domestic violence is often silenced in South Asian communities - as in many communities. But a determined non-profit organization in New York City has been hard at work to give a voice to South Asian women who find themselves victimized and without support in a foreign country.

Sakhi, meaning 'woman friend', was founded in 1989 by five South Asian women. "These women came together because they felt there was a critical need around domestic violence in New York's large immigrant South Asian population that wasn't being addressed," says Sandeep Bathala, Director, Direct Services, Sakhi.
