As a result of the Bosnian war, I became a refugee, and for the first time realized the impact of trauma on women as a result of war. In healing myself I wanted to heal others, particularly women who are survivors of war rape and sexual violence. While in camp I established a women’s group. We talked, prayed, and supported each other. I met women from different backgrounds and religions working to heal each other. I found it important to remind people of their value, of their humanity.
