Emergency medical Care
Girls suffer complicated lacerations due to defilement [rape]. We share in their pain by giving them appropriate urgent medical care. This is care which most girls cannot afford and yet it is the difference that will assure future health or torment. Sometimes expensive surgical procedures are needed and can only be found in the big city hospitals like Nairobi. With your help we get them there and they get helped.
While at the shelter, girls can access health assessments, referrals for specialized gynaecological procedures, HIV & STIs prevention medications, and pregnancy prevention.
Holding their hands until justice is done
The children survivors of gender violence are more often from poor families and many times orphans, with aged caregivers, rarely think of seeking for justice. The tedious and complicated legal processes discourage families from seeking justice for their children. It is a life of hopelessness as the perpetrators intimidate them making life unbearable for girls and their families. Many girls will never see justice without a helping hand.
RI comes in to help the girls and their families to access justice by having perpetrators face the law. RI supports this process through legal advice to girls, the guardians, and other witnesses, through counseling, witnesses support program, and aiding in evidence collection and preservation.
