Help Sandrine Recover From Sexual Assault

A microproject by Pathways to Safety International Vetted since 2008 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit Project of the Month Site Visit Verified

Summary

Sandrine and Cynthia were having the time of their life on a trip through Europe. One evening on the way back to their rental in Spain they stopped and had a glass of wine. Two men approached them and began flirting. When they told the men they were a couple, they left, muttering something under their breath. The men followed and forced their way into the apartment. One raped Sandrine while the other held Cynthia down and made her watch. We will be able to provide this couple with counseling.
