Dear Very Wonderful People! Fiona just got me the full list of all of you who contributed through Tswanda, so forgive me if some of you are receiving a second Thank You! It was a very lovely experience to be able to give each of the AARC staff $200, just before Christmas. Most of them were not expecting anything, and they were so delighted, and I know that we will have made their Christmas, a very different time than it would have been. The photo shows Malvyn, Martha, Rudo, Juliette, Adelaide and Memory... Sima the driver had to go to the bank for salaries... and Patience had just had a baby, Phephisiwe, Magna and Elizabeth were on leave but will have got their card within 24 hours. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, whatever happens in 2016 we all had a good Christmas!! Of course staff morale impacts how Sexual Assault survivors are received... I am hopeful for 2016!! BIG LOVE and THANKS............. Ginny

The Staff

The Adolescent and Adult Rape Clinic (AARC) was established as a response to the dire lack of appropriate facilities for a comprehensive and sensitive response for rape survivors in government hospitals in Harare, and it aims to establish a model for replication throughout the country.It provides comprehensive medical management, counselling and support services and has partnerships with organizations providing complementary services in particular Police, Courts and Legal services, as well as with partners whose focus is Prevention, Awareness raising and Advocacy surrounding gender based violence issues.

In spite of its excellent work, the Clinic has been affected by recent cuts to donor funding to Zimbabwe, and staff have therefore been working on reduced salaries throughout 2015.

The staff have not allowed this to compromise the quality of their work and services but, to reward their hard work, we would be grateful for your support to provide them with a Christmas bonus.



How the funds are going to be used.
The funds will be equally distributed to 11 staff members at the Adolescent and Adult Rape Clinic as a Christmas bonus on 16th December 2015.

USD 1,000 has already been raised, so our online target is an additional USD 1,000.00 to be distributed amongst staff plus USD135.00 to cover the campaign fees. Any extra money raised will go towards staff salaries in 2016.
