”Speaking out helped me to let it go. Wounded Healers helped me to vibrate higher and become a magnet of miracles. Now I am in this place where everything feels right. My heart is calm. My soul is lit. My vision is clear. I am at peace with where I have been. And at peace with where I am headed because I know I am not alone. I feel lovely, and I have managed to join broken pieces together with gold.”
”The kind of impact wounded Healers is making in our society is like planting a tree. In the long run, there will be shade and fruit for everyone. By involving, young men in sexual violence prevention programs will shift their cultural norms and unlearn what society has taught us”
”Every month I get a packet of sanitary pads from Wounded Healers. I am always looking forward to going there because they show me so much, love. I used to use pieces of clothes when I couldn’t afford sanitary pads. Sometimes I would get infections and would not tell anyone. I have learned about menstrual hygiene, and I am teaching my younger sister”.

”I am now leading a mentorship club in my community. I have learnt to express my self and leadership skills. My group meet once a week to discuss about girls matters and health. I never imagined being happy again, I was always demotivated but when I met other survivors making impacts I was motivated. Wounded Healers is a home for me. I now dream of going back to school so I can be journalist to amplify more voices of survivors”.
