I heard about Ishar by word of mouth. When I started coming to Ishar programs, I found it very beneficial. It helped me to cope with my depression. I met many women from different countries and made friends. I have fun here and they invite guest speakers to give information on different topics. There are qualified creche workers at Ishar who help children to learn and make friends. Staff are very friendly and helpful. I love coming to Ishar.
The staff at Ishar come from a range of different cultural backgrounds. Ishar ensures clients have access to a full range of expertise offered by its multidisciplinary team. View our team here.
