Raped children's safe house

$47,557 of $85,000 goal

Raised by 347 people in 30 months
I am an Australian girl in my 20's who has JUST opened an acute care rescue and rehab centre for raped and assaulted babies and kids in May outside Nairobi. The children are as young as 6 months old and have violent assaults, severe burns and rape trauma. I am providing extensive rehabilitation and safety for babies, pregnant children and little kids from extreme sexual violence, prostitution, FGM and child marriage. THIS IS NOT ANOTHER CHILDRENS HOME.

I am globally registered and 100% TAX deductible, and have been nominated for Australian of the Year this year. Finalists are announced in November 2017.

ALL Children's homes are businesses that profit from children's abuse and keep them neglected. I AM HERE TO BREAK THAT CYCLE and stop children being sold and their abuse never treated so that adults can financially benefit. MY PROJECT is a step down facility providing top post trauma care, and providing an environment that can ensure recovery and children can go on to commencement or continuance of education.

After 2 1/2 years working in the field and on the ground in Kenya and working with partner organisations to care for my kids, I have moved to Nairobi to launch my own Acute Care safe house so I can have a 24/7 role and do the best job possible. The centre will bridge the gap between hospital and school, ensuring the best medical care and stablility is given to each child after trauma. Once the children are well they will enter my education program and attend school funded by the Foundation.  My activism and child protection expertise saves children as young as newborns from the horror of sex trafficking, violence, rape, child marriage and FGM to name a few.

My centre has capacity to hold 40 - 50 children but I can't do this without funds to support them. Once rehabilitated at my centre, they will be educated in boarding school and also live there which is common for children without families who have sponsors to be able to do.
This will then allow for a permanent flow of needy children to access my services and my safe house. As a psychology graduate and Medical School candidate, I have a passion for public and paediatric health and also work tirelessly to provide healthcare and sexual education to poverty stricken persons.

Please HELP ME with costs to complete centre furnishings, HUGE medical bills, therapy fees and essentials such as food and clothes.  The house is secured, but I need essentials and food and money for medical costs URGENTLY.  Every dollar counts.

Getting ready for our Christmas party! Stay update on the Foundation Facebook page as I am banned from Facebook personally for 30 days. I’ll post everything there to show you how much you have all done with your donations to get us through. I LOVE YOU ALL WHO DONATED ... toys given out to 154 kids, medical care paid for for 72 children at Kitale District Hospital - LIFE SAVING TREATMENTS - and 11 kids remaining in the house with rent paid in advance. Now we have this party to relax us all (AND ME ! ) after a turbulent end to the year. Back to school for this lot next week so about to kick off Child Sponsorship requests for school fees! Please email me if you are keen to sponsor a child for education. g@gafoundation.co

SAVE A LIFE THIS CHRISTMAS. Your donations in action, in real time with not a cent wasted on admin.

Pre admission ... Last nights rape victim. Little boy about two and a half . Three donors - Tara Schneider from Germany, Tonia Wheeler and her daughter, Nikita from Australia just saved his life. He’s still under and heavily sedated so he can recover. ZERO funding means he couldn’t even have a consultation.

Because of you three I could prepay and get him emergency surgery. THANK YOU. You also not only saved his life, but funded life saving and desperately needed pharmaceuticals for six others. @gut1roemerhof @toniajanewheeler @nikitanizik

Save a life this Christmas. Save another baby like these crying ones who in desperate need for medical care and pain relief after severe abuse. Read more on the GoFund Me link, or more on my Annual report on the website.

This our new house everyone. A three bedroom and rat infested shit hole. This is what happens when people stop donating. 14 kids sent to a children’s home yesterday. And this is my new home. I sleep here too. I live here hanging on by a thread with the money that comes from people who continue to donate, it’s all going to housing and feeding these remaining kids - this is what you are paying for. This is how I grew up, in this exact “environment”. To date I still have to remind myself to shower every so often So for me it’s usual. It’s all I know. I think by the time I was seven I had maybe 9 showers in my life. But - These kids deserve far better. Especially after the severe trauma they have gone. I was lucky. I left my shithole and constant rape when I was 11 and had the ability to find a job to escape it all. I’m devastated for having to call the life these kids with me, in our family home, to be down to this.
