AWB continues its work providing free trauma-relief acupuncture clinics to women in Nepal. Currently, we have two weekly clinics at the SAATHI women and children’s center where people are in recovery from sex and organ trafficking.
Also, with coordination with Healing Hands Nepal, we have started our new clinic at Shara (meaning Help) Nepal – a Women Center recovering from alcohol and drug abuse. A couple of women living here used to work as sex workers in truck stops and bars in Kathmandu. There are girls aging as young as 14 to 38. Most of them have anxiety problems and 2 are very serious cases – depression, anger issues, suicidal.
