The Story

Hi, this is Zara and Shemone.

 

We are close friends and interns at SOLS Health. As individuals, we are quite different, but share our passion for helping those in need. It is what drove us both to study psychology, and what drives us now to start this fundraising campaign. 

Domestic violence is a nightmare, but for some, it is their reality. More specifically, it is the reality that has been lived by 1 in 10 women and 4 in 10 children in Malaysia. There are victims fortunate enough to escape the abuse, but they can remain shackled by the damage done to their mental health. The trauma women and children experience can weigh them down, hindering their recovery and progression in life. It can be especially devastating to see this unresolved trauma in children resulting in struggles in school and interpersonal relationships, leaving them with a weak foundation to deal with the challenges they will face in their lives. 

SOLS Health, a behavioural health centre, has created the BRAVE programme (Building Resilience, Acceptance, Valiance, and Empowerment) to provide free mental health care for families who have been through domestic violence. The programme aims to restore the mental health of the victims, rebuild their lost self-esteem and equip them with the tools to create better lives for themselves.

 

Most of us, thankfully, have not experienced domestic violence. But we believe everyone can imagine the difficulty of living a life burdened by pain and despair without the means or space to recover adequately. We hope that by bringing awareness, this issue will be met with empathy and compassion. If you can, please donate to this programme. The generosity of your heart will help the less fortunate make better lives for themselves. If you cannot donate please share this fundraiser. Your initiative to help will be felt by those who need it.

 

Note: Please be informed that the tax exemption will only be provided to Malaysians who donated RM50 and above upon request.
