REPARATIVE SURGERY PROGRAM FOR WOMEN VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, MATO GROSSO (2014)

In partnership with the Government of the State of Mato Grosso, we implemented the ” Reparative Surgery Programme for Victims of Domestic Violence”. The Reparative Surgery Program worked in the state capital, but Mato Grosso was the first area to have the full support of the government to carry out the project. It presents an opportunity for women to regain their self-esteem, rebuild their identity and resume their lives without the physical marks of violence. With this second project in Mato Grosso, a National incentive was created that led other states of Brazil to participate. The gateway for access to the program was a phone number made available free of charge to anyone (0800 7714040).
