GA Foundation has opened its second project – The Angela Rescue Project- a women and children’s emergency domestic and sexual violence centre. This has been a dream of mine for several years and opened in March 2018 in the middle of the slum with the highest rate of rape and domestic violence. The location is Kawangware, Nairobi, Kenya. Many severely poor women and children cannot afford even to get transport to hospitals, let alone a medical clinic in times of desperate need. In short the clinic and centre will provide 24/7 doctor/nurse and:
1. Police protection
2. Emergency medical care and medical expense funding
4. Clothing and personal hygiene needs
5. Legal advocates
6. Transport to the district and regional hospitals for full surgery and medical care
7. Education and rehabilitation to women so they can be employed, relocate and sustain themselves.
8. Training for life skills and small businesses
9. In-house shop and international online store for purchases, so everyone can buy the goods being made.
10. Long-term educational sponsorship under the Naisula Foundation (our educational sponsorship division of the Organisation) for the children saved.
In the future with funding, domestic violence victims will be able to come to the shelter and learn a variety of skills. Courses will be run to make sure previously unemployed mothers and women can start their own business or be employed. All goods made in the centre will be available to be sold to sustain the women. Goods and training will include textiles, beautiful jewellery, leather goods, arts, hairdressing, cooking, etc.
Thousands of women and raped children go completely untreated. If help is not walking distance then it is forgone. Only the very lucky actually make it to the hospital or to reporting agencies. This particular slum in Nairobi is where the majority of the kids this year I’ve had are coming from. Before I permanently relocated the average age of a raped child in my care was 8-9 years old. The average age in this slum is 2.6 years to 2.9 years old. Domestic violence in this slum is rife. It’s a safe estimate that over 70% of adult women are suffering. We are seeking funds to secure monthly rent of the premises, set up security teams, clinical/medical equipment, educational equipment, sewing machines, textiles, and support skeleton staff.
Paediatric Medical Sponsorship
Become a monthly medical sponsor for children who cannot receive lifesaving surgery, inpatient care and pharmaceuticals without your support.
Nothing is free in Africa, and especially not in Kenya. Everyone in this country pays for medical care PRIOR to admission , surgery or consultation – it and if you don’t, you are tuned away.
Children die and suffer long term disease due being declined this basic right to health care.
They suffer greatly in this part of the world due to no public health system, nor does the government provide Health care as a basic human right to its country, according for them, it is a privilege.
Join our circle of lifesavers and pay for a child’s much needed medical care and follow up support.
