Crown princess Mary and her lady-in-waiting, Caroline Heering were at a women's shelter in Copenhagen to present the new theme Mary Fonden would be focussing on, apart from bullying among children: violence against women.
"Vi har identificeret, at der i Danmark er stort tabu om vold i hjemmet. Og det vil vi gerne være med til at ændre. Vi håber at kunne give disse kvinder og børn en ny chance."
Then Mary was given a tour of the shelter.
Photos taken by Steen Brogaard of Mary helping to pack LEGO sponsored rucksacks for children who have been suddenly put in unfamiliar surroundings (such as a woman's shelter) were released to the press.
