A Wellington lawyer has quit her job, so that former refugees could have one.
Elisha Watson resigned from her full-time job as a litigation lawyer at Bell Gully in September to launch Nisa, an underwear brand which employs Wellington women from refugee backgrounds.
Watson was inspired to found the company, named the Arabic word for "woman", following her experiences providing legal advice to refugees at the Community Law Centre, and as a refugee resettlement volunteer for the Red Cross.
