Chief Executive, Best-selling Author Karma Nirvana
Hi there, I'm excited to do a Q&A with the Parlio community. As a survivor of a forced marriage, I founded the leading award-winning national charity that provides the only UK national dedicated helpline supporting all victims and professionals seeking support in cases of forced marriages and honour abuse. Since the inception of the helpline (2008) we have received over 50,000 UK calls but this is still recognised as under-reported. This continues to be a problem across the world and there is a great need to continue raising awareness if we are collectively to tackle it.
This is the first time I will be open to answering any questions relating to our campaign and my personal experiences of being a British born subject and promised into a marriage at the age of 8, my story remains one of many and I wish to share it for you reach the many who are suffering in silence.
