Whitefield’s First Support Center for Women and Children, BEMBALA (meaning support in Kannada) has coalesced into a group of like-minded individuals whose purpose is to help women and child survivors of all forms of violence.
The Bembala Center at Vydehi opened its doors on the 30th of Jan. This in itself has been possible because of the kindness and good will of so many individuals and organizations. Since late 2020, Bembala has moved its center to a room inside the Whitefield Police Station on Whitefield Main Road.
