    Women with Mental Illnesses and Victims of sexual abuse

    from Faridabad, Haryana

Story

Mala (name changed), a middle-aged woman who thinks she is 2 years old, her mental age arrested to those days when she was the happiest. Her childlike smile hiding a gruesome trauma that she had to endure during her prime years. She was unable to call out for help because nobody would believe a mentally ill patient. It was when the signs of sexual abuse became apparent and she had to undergo a hysterectomy (removal of uterus) that the years of trauma she endured came to light. She does not remember who did this to her. Today, she stays with 18 others with similar stories at Marian Ashram. This home is a sanctuary for destitute women, victims of sexual abuse, domestic violence and those neglected by family members. Its a safe haven which needs support from us, the community. Mala is safe and she found a home where she will not be sexually abused but the years of trauma took a toll on her mental health. These women are all seeking treatment from BK Hospital for their psychiatric ailments, some of them are bedridden and most of them are unable to perform activities of daily life and are dependent solely on Nuns for their basic needs. This fundraiser will help these women with their medical expenses and basic requirements like food, clothing, etc. 

 Lets donate New Life.
