During the almost three years of our activity I have come face to face with the great distress caused by the insufficient availability of affordable therapy for men and women who experienced sexual abuse in childhood. My own experience and familiarity with this distress were insufficient to deal with the daily reality of these requests for help.
For almost 5 years we supplied induvudual therapy to hundreds of men and women arownd Israel.
Happily, great pain sometimes begets solutions. I decided to send out an appeal to psychologists, social workers, and therapists with the appropriate training, to take on one client who was abused in childhood for a fee of between 13$ and 26$ per session. This creates an affordable avenue to change and recovery for many people who need it. I was touched to the depths of my heart: in spite of what I went through in childhood, I always knew that there are many good people who wish to give of themselves to others.
Within less than a week 47 therapists responded to my appeal; now there are more than 150 who have expressed their desire to be involved in this project. More than 100 are already working with clients.
