Van for charity


Hey, My name is Nuna, I am from Kenya. I founded the charity Wounded Healers in 2018 to support girl survivors of sexual violence with education and empowerment. Together with the team, we have rescued 11 teenagers from early marriages, FGM, and abusers who are mostly family members. We have managed to some of the girls back to school and also provide them with a safe space to live in with their babies.

With Covid 19 pandemic, the situation has affected most of our basic needed services.

On behalf of Wounded Healers am fundraising to buy a van to safely transport these girls to the therapy appointments, Court proceeding, and schools. Most girls fail to get to court on time or feel very unsafe being on a public bus. We have cases of times we missed appointments or got late to the court and the judge drop the case.

Currently, we mostly use motorcycle taxis to get to appointments, this is a very unsafe way as most girls don't want to sit on them.



The social worker uses the motorcycle too as she delivers food and basic needs.

We also have a team of volunteers who most of them are survivors who successfully go to the community to educate young people on human rights and how to protect themselves. Most of the time we end up losing our materials for training as we hustle to get back to the public bus with bags full of projectors, banners computers, etc which also put the volunteer in a very unsafe environment.

Wounded Healers International is a new US-based organization EIN 863187355.
