OUTREACH SENTISIZATION ACTIVITY AT THE PRIMARY SCHOOL LEVEL


Welcome!

Rainbo Initiative is the only provider of free medical and psychosocial services for survivors of gender-based violence in Sierra Leone.

The Government of Sierra Leone is meant to provide free medical treatment to survivors of gender-based violence and sexual assault. In theory the Government of Sierra Leone do provide this, as it is present in Section 39 of sexual offences Act 2012 , however in practice survivors have to pay for medical treatment when they arrive at a Government hospital.

Rainbo Centres are the only place in the whole of Sierra Leone where survivors can receive free medical treatment when they arrive at a hospital
