In conflict areas, sexual violence is used as a weapon, to humiliate the enemy, with catastrophic impact on the victim’s physical and mental health.
Often excluded from their community, surrounded by shame, victims also suffer social and economic consequences.

The Red Cross provides shelter, medical care and psychological counselling, but is also committed to giving these women hope for a future, through fundings and training.
The Red Cross provides information to the public, the police and armed forces about the consequences of sexual violence, to prevent the victims from being expelled from the community, and to help decrease sexual abuse during war and conflict.
