New abuse programme helps Samoa's nofo tane

RNZ reports the women are known in Samoan as nofo tane and the Samoa Victim Support Group says they make up at least half of those knocking on its doors.

The group's president, Muli-aga Teli Sili-niu Lina Chang, said a two year $US200,000 project, funded by the United Nations, started in July and has reached villages in five constituencies so far.
