BENEFITING: Bon Secours Richmond Health Care Foundation
Help us help them – Bon Secours’ Forensic Nurses. Victims of abuse and violence need very specialized care. Ever wonder who collects samples, DNA, and other evidence from victims of physical abuse and/or sexual violence? Ever wonder who whispers encouragement and strength to a victim in crisis? Or who the expert witness is that testifies on a victim’s behalf? Often, a forensic nurse. Bon Secours’ forensic nurses care for women and children during a highly fragile time. An appalling reality is, victims range for dependent elderly to innocent infants just a few months old. Each victim needs clothing, shoes, a safe haven, emotional support, nourishment, and so much more. The forensic nursing department needs expensive medical, diagnostic, and care equipment which coincides with the skill levels, education, and goals of its nurses. The department is also involved in helping victims of human trafficking in their transition to safety. The goal is to free them physically and mentally from their despots. Your contribution will make a difference! I appreciate your support and on behalf of the nurses and victims, thank you.
