​Helping women refugees in Bangkok

They are women refugees in Bangkok from Asian and African countries, such as Somalia and Pakistan, where they faced wars and systematic rape and oppression. In the Thai capital they find help: from the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) which has started a specific project for their psychological and material assistance. “The women refugees, almost all of whom are victims of sexual violence, are extremely vulnerable. We help them to feel less lonely” says Jennifer Martin, a psycho-social consultant of the JRS. However, it is difficult to really help these women, notes the JRS. The only certainty is that socialization and human relations restore their “dignity and trust”.
