Help Her Recover
We believe every woman and girl has a right to have a future that is not dictated by the past.
A key part of our mission is to improve the health of our communities by investing in the physical, mental, and financial health of women and girls who’ve experienced gender-based violence and sexual exploitation.
Help Her Recover (HHR) Trauma Relief for the Community is the arm of RfR which serves women living with the intersecting challenges of violence, abuse, poverty, mental illness, and addiction. A division of Rituals for Recovery focused on providing trauma relief services to women.
"During this century, human rights have been recognized in law and guaranteed in international agreements. During this century, humanity has learnt that the enjoyment of human rights is essential to the well-being and development of the individual, the community and the world.
And yet, too many women are still denied these basic human rights. Too often, their liberty and dignity are compromised. And, too many of them are subjected to violence."
"Violence against women is perhaps the most shameful human rights violation, and it is perhaps the most pervasive. It knows no boundaries of geography, culture or wealth. As long as it continues, we cannot claim to be making real progress towards equality, development and peace."
