In conjunction with the Safe City Campaign, Red Dot Foundation (Global) in collaboration with Engender Consultancy and Sisterhood Alliance, is launching the Safe City mobile app with upgraded features to help keep women safe in Malaysian cities.

The Safe City mobile app, now available in Malaysia, enables anyone who experiences or witnesses an incident of sexual harassment to report it anonymously and receive guidance on what to do and where to get help.
