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.
Leaving or questioning a faith can be a very complicated process, and for the most part ExMuslims for safety reasons tend to be closeted and live a double life to the fear of abandonment, shunning, ostracism, but also their life.
Apostates face a great amount of abuse be it physical, emotional or psychological by their families and/or communities should they decide to announce their departure of a religion. Both choices lead to extreme levels of anxiety, depression, PTSD and other mental health issues.
Our Aim is to help people from Muslims backgrounds defeat the stigma of mental health and bring them closer to understanding that there’s help out there and we want to be able to provide them with that.
We’ve partnered with a clinic in the UK, Cherry Tree Clinic and other independent therapists depending on locations that are trained to provide specialised therapy for apostates. We sponsor 8 sessions per referral, and from there onwards the clients are free to continue with the therapists as they require on a private bases. Our therapists are trained to work with apostates and also undergo supervised sessions by an external therapist,
