  • Support Groups Matter - Survivors Matter - with Craig Sicilia

    in Radio

    Brain Injury Support groups save lives, build communities and give meaning to a life affected by brain injury
    Many who think about groups, think it may just be coffee and a donut but they are so much more than that, groups for many are the only connection to society, any connection to any other person that is not a medical profession or pharmacist dish out medicines.  
    Groups get people into the community if their facilitated right, doing healthy activities such as yoga, meditation and nutrition and exercise.   They can help survivors and their families find a purpose that has meaning.  Even after years of being stuck in hopeless mode.  It saves lives, for many survivors who first discover others who have the same challenges, it can be the first glimpse of hope.  Hope that life is not only about loss and pain.  Hope that life can have meaning.  No other services available to those living with a brain injury can inspire hope like peer support.
    We are doing this episode to share with any and all who ever want to limit support groups, we need people to understand the power in Peer support groups, the power to rebuild life, and dreams..

    A platform where victims and survivors of child sex slavery and rapes, are encouraged to break their silence, to put an end to the satanic rituals in public service


    Victims do not have any voice, fair justice system, remedy, rehabilitation or compensation system.


    This platform gives all victims a voice, empowerment and practical referrals to improve public services.


    Ruby Akhtar has helped rescue thousands of child brides all over the world, trafficked through embassies and airports with fake age on passports and used in child prostitution in the UK and globally.  


    Now she is doing a Criminal Law degree to catch up with her education lost through the child marriage at age 12 to an English paedophile living in Ireland, Bangor, age 34, so she can change the laws to stop the trafficking of humans.


    Ruby and her siblings were abused in St Mary's Catholic convent school in Pakistan, from where she was trafficked.

    Human Trafficking - A Survivors Story - Jennifer Ward

    in Motivation

    Roughly 4 years ago Jennifer discovered there was a thing called human trafficking. Hearing about slavery weighed heavily on her heart and she began praying to God. God spoke to her heart saying, “Your steps are ordered, You will be at the right place, at the right time, with the right people, and I will carry you in the palm of my hand” This became her daily prayer.


     


    After having received Human Trafficking 101, Speakers Bureau, and Street Outreach training she began volunteering through Salvation Army’s CORRC. In Oct 2014 she was hired as a Volunteer Coordinator. In Jan 2015 the Ohio task force rescued 18 Massage Parlor survivors. As Volunteer Coordinator she was able to care for these women.


     


    Jennifer is still currently volunteering and has developed many friendships with survivors. After opening up one day she came to the realization that she had also been a victim of human trafficking.


     


    Raised in a Christian home, but always feeling like she wasn't good enough. Raped at the age of eleven. Suffered multiple rapes in her teens and homelessness. She became a mother at seventeen.  She felt pressured to marry, at twenty, after having another baby. He abused her mentally, physically, even tried to kill her. After he left her with nothing she worked in bars, strip clubs, a phone sex operator and as an escort.


     


    Going on thirteen years later learning to accept that what happened to her, as a child, was of no fault of her own. Moving past the labels, currently on a journey of self-discovery, she has found her voice and can't keep silent anymore.

    in Current Events

    Tonight on Tackling Domestic Violence, Troy Otradovec welcomes Laura from We Are Survivors International to the show.  Laura was in an abuse relationship, and she will share her story.  Today her and her chlidren are still coping, but taking all the right steps forward. From the words of Laura:


    "Two years ago, I left my emotionally and physically abusive husband. It has been an emotional roller coaster but we are two years free and my two children and I are working through the aftershocks of a violent marriage. The effects of one monster's brutal behavior has changed our world, our outlook on life and relationships. We went through hell, but we are working through it and are in a much brighter and safer place now. The three of us will deal with the impact of this for the rest of our lives, however we are survivors and I am hopeful that we will break the cycle."


    Domestic Violence affects one in four women, in their lifetime.  Over six million children will witness some form of domestic abuse this year.  It is time to stop domestic violence one person at a time.  Listen in and call the show with your thoughts.

    Matthew Eaton joins show to talk about 13 insidious rules of sex abuse survivors

    in Current Events

    As domestic and sexual abuse awareness grow, the common statement "Why didn't they just leave," still gets mentioned.  Matthew Eaton will join the show today and talk about the 13 insidious rules of sexual abuse survivors.  Many times we associate abuse with some form of physical abuse.  However, the emotional abuse that goes along with the physical abuse can be more harmful, than the bruises.  The bruises go away, but the emotional torment can take a long time to go away. Mathew will also share his story, and how he has survived.  He now writes and blogs about sexual abuse, and is an advocate to raise awareness.
