Help us, help others or yourself!
In 2014 a Freedom of Information request to UK police forces revealed that over 11,000 cases of ‘honour’ crime were recorded between 2010-14. Before accessing support, victims at risk of HBV experienced abuse for 2 years longer
(5 years vs 3 years) than those not identified as at risk of HBV.
Nearly a quarter (23%) of victims at risk of HBV were not eligible for most benefits. 68% of victims at risk of HBV were at high risk of serious harm or homicide, compared to 55% of those not identified as at risk of HBV.
We aim to create a safe space for women to come together and support one another. We have multiple programs in place, such as the video series “Support corner”, our community engagement group, and our story telling podcast on YouTube.
Currently, we are fundraising for our Mental Health Program. Our mental health program has partnered with a clinic in the UK that is trained to provide specialised therapy for apostates. Sponsoring 1 session for 1 person costs as little as £20-40 pounds, and with greater funding we can refer women for longer sessions.
If you’re looking to join the program to receive this benefit, please email email@example.com to join our waiting list.
