Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person. Providing legal assistance to women recovering from rape will not only prevent such crimes against humanity, but can also effectively help abused women to live with strength and confidence, said Adv.

“A ‘Support Group’ will be run in our office on a specific day as a safe place to express the grief and problems of those living with rape. Women who have been sexually assaulted live under pressure as if they had made a mistake. So the ‘support group’ will try to reduce their stress by communicating with each other. This will give these women the courage to fight rape cases without fear of repression and they will also try to live a normal life, Adv. Sarode said.

Women victims of rape cases in Maharashtra and their relatives can contact the Sahyog Trust on 020-25459777.
