The Commit and Act Foundation has rendered medical treatment and psychosocial support to a 12 year-old girl who was physically challenged.

The 12 year-old girl is reported to be suffering from chronic wounds and paralysis. However through the intervention of the Commit and Act, she is currently receiving medical treatment at one of their Girl’s Shelter in Bo City, Southern Sierra Leone.

Commit and Act is an organization dedicated to empowering vulnerable populations in Sierra Leone. They work with local healthcare workers and other professionals to aid survivors of violence and help prevent violence.

They also treat survivors of domestic and gender-based assault, people struggling with trauma following Sierra Leone’s 11-year civil war, and community members facing mental health difficulties.

Within their safe, accepting shelters and workshops, they  offer space both to heal from pain and to build fulfilling lives and families.

The Commit and Act has Girl’s Shelter in Bo and Makeni. These shelters are a safe temporary shelter designed to provide healing and rehabilitation to young female victims of violence (Sexual Gender-Based Violence, Female Genital Mutilation, Gang Rape, and many more) by offering the necessary medical and psychosocial treatment, legal aid, education, trainings, livelihood and basic needs. That is, food, dignity kits, water, clothing, and hygiene.
