Every year, 5,000 people are killed as a result of ‘honour’-based abuse (HBA).


Savera UK is working to make that number 0.


We need you to raise awareness and money to help us meet that goal.


HBA is a crime committed to defend a family or community’s ‘honour’. Perpetrators feel that the only way to restore family ‘honour’ is to harm or kill. Savera UK is working to end HBA for good.


This year, during the 16 Days Of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence (Friday, 25th November until Saturday, 10th December 2022) we are asking you to take on a #5KForTheFiveThousand


Get your family and friends to sponsor you to do your 5K your way - you can walk it, run it, cycle it or swim it, or even get creative by knitting or sewing 5,000 stitches, doing a 5,000 piece jigsaw or doing ANYTHING to raise 5,000p (£50) to support our cause.


Your 5K will help us to end HBA.


Are you with us?

Savera UK is one of the leading charities tackling culturally-specific abuse in the UK, including forced marriage and female genital mutilation (FGM). It campaigns to eliminate ‘honour’-based abuse (HBA) and harmful practices and provide life-saving services to those at risk, regardless of age, culture, sexuality or gender. ‘Savera’ means ‘new beginning’ in Hindi, a theme that is symbolic of the support the charity provides to those who are at risk of harmful practices.
