Thanks to your support of this project, MADRE was recently able to send financial support to KOFAVIV, our Haitian sister organization, to reinforce their lifesaving programs and services for rape survivors. With your support, KOFAVIV will be able to provide essential hygiene kits to rape survivors who are staying at the emergency shelter at the KOFAVIV Women's Center after fleeing recent acts of violence and abusive environments. Furthermore, KOFAVIV will continue providing legal services to rape survivors, a crucial step in finding them the justice they so deserve. Thanks to your backing, the KOFAVIV Center continues to serve as a safe haven for women and girls who have survived sexual assault and gender-based violence. We are so proud to count you among our supporters of this vital program!
