What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Child Sexual Abuse is one of the biggest problems facing the world today and is the underlying cause of many things that are blighting our society. Rape and sexual assault victims often know and feel the pain of being raped in their childhood, teens, and adulthood. They sometimes feel or believe they suffer no short- or long-term effects, but many do. When true healing from the initial CSA trauma is not achieved some rape victims, without realizing, have a way of making themselves a victim of self-inflicted abuse, both internally and externally. Externally, they may look for love in all the wrong places, including sex and drugs, which internally has a way of blocking the pain of being raped in their childhood and/or adulthood. Sadly, some victims do not know healing is even an option.
