Shabina Begum, Management
Shabina is a Barrister-at-Law of the Honourable Society of the Middle Temple and she is currently working as a Domestic Violence Advisor at Newham Action Against Domestic Violence. Prior to this Shabina was working as a family law paralegal, which provided her a legal insight into the domestic violence sector. Her interest in ASTI’s work stems from her experience of volunteering at Aanchal Women’s Aid, where she predominantly supported women of South Asian background and developed an understanding of the culture specific issues within domestic violence.
Dr Ron Hiles, Surgical

RuthAnn Fanstone, Burns Therapy
RuthAnn Fanstone is an experienced physiotherapist who volunteers her skills with ASTI and the ASF’s as much as her free time permits. I caught up with her recently to reminisce about her visit to the ASF centre in Islamabad, where she travelled as part of the ASTI Physical Rehabilitation Team. This is what she had to say about her experience.
