Nekevah Rescue Center
Nekevah Rescue Center is a registered Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), incorporated under the Companies Act (1995) Trinidad and Tobago on October 19, 2006. The organization originated from an outreach effort by the Triumphant Women Ministry of Divine Encounter Fellowship with a hotline made available to minister to hurting women. Lead by Mrs. Joycelyn Duncan, together with our group of concerned women, the effort has evolved from just ministering to women via the telephone into full fledged “rescue center”.
This organization is headed by a board of ten directors and managed by a committee of ten, all volunteers.
We have a paid staff of two (2) part time matrons, and the volunteered services of three counselors, and a medical doctor.
We are funded by fund raisers, well wishers and supporters and by our affiliated church.
