Medical Service for Women Who Have Been Victims of Sexual Violence

Our story

Summary of the campaign:

Our campaign is focused on the problems that exist today in Mexico. 6 out of 10 women in Mexico have been victims of some type of violence. 41.3% of women have been victims of sexual violence. After they experience a type of sexual abuse or violence they have no place to go for proper care.

For the Red Cross Saltillo it is important to be part of the attention to these women who have been victims of such violence. Women in Mexico of any age should have the attention, support and tools necessary to attend after living a traumatic situation in their life.

The objective is to create a Saltillo Red Cross specialized in gynecology to care for women who have been victims of sexual violence. Here, a specialist, may offer the necessary check, free medication if necessary, and any additional psychological or medical attention you would need, at no cost.

How will we put your donations in action?

The donations will cover what is necessary to acquire an ultrasound machine, necessary gynecological tools, as well as to adapt the physical space to start giving this attention.

If the goal is not reached, it will continue with the same focus of the project, we would only remove the machinery that is more of a luxury. The resources will be focused on adapting the necessary space to be able to give attention.

Being part of the answer to the question of many women after a situation of sexual violence, “Now what will I do?” It is one of the most satisfying things we can do. There are places that provide psychological and moral support to victims, but not many that offer physical support for themselves.

Why it matters:

The impact that this project would have in Saltillo is innumerable. Up to date our contact with women is constant, receiving a minimum of 300 women in our facilities per day. Listening to their stories and being part of the solution is our main goal.

A victim of violence should never re-victimize. That is why with this project, all our staff will be trained to provide the women who come, the best possible care.

It is not only important to re-educate our men and that women no longer have to live as victims, but also to give them the attention and resources necessary to move forward.

The Red Cross is a name we all know. We exist with the only value of giving our all for the most vulnerable citizens. Our goal with this project is focused on that.

Potential challenges:

Our needs always go beyond just this project. We are the only delegations in Mexico that still provides our services 100% free. If you would like to be part of our mission, do not hesitate to tell us in what way you can support us so we can get in your orders and receive with pleasure everything they can give us.

We invite you to share a little of what we are doing here at Saltillo Red Cross. Be part of our family!
