Ahadi Kenya sponsors treatment for rape victims

08 April 2015, 11:46 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - The Ahadi Kenya Trust in partnership with Nairobi Women Hospital will sponsor free treatment for rape and defilement victims from Central Kenya region.

The partnership will also see the victims undergo psychological counseling and guidance to help them to live normal live.

Announcing the partnership at Gitungano Primary School in Murang’a, Ahadi Trust Executive Director Stanley Kamau decried high cases of rape cases in central region saying the victims in most cases are left without any medical help.

He condemned those who are taking advantage of mentally challenged children and those infested with jiggers to defile them.

“I’m very much disappointed with the high rate of defiling helpless jigger infested children and mentally challenged people and this needs concerted efforts for all local leaders to work towards eliminating the heinous behaviour from this part of Kenya,” said Kamau.

He spoke during an event where they treated jigger infested elderly people from the area while accompanied by Nairobi Women Hospital Group Executive Officer, Dr. Sam Thenya.

“I urge the County government to employ proper measures to control establishment of drinking dens in this region as most men have indulged themselves in alcoholism which poses a grievous challenge to the County’s economy,” stressed Kamau.

On his part, Dr. Thenya said they have been recording many rape cases from central region and advised local residents to report any rape case without delay in order to help the victim receive treatment on time.

“Treating rape and defilement cases is not the solution but is my wish to see such cases totally eliminated from our society,” said Thenya.
