BENEFITING: TRUST WOMEN FOUNDATION INC
Trust Women Foundation has recently purchased Dr. George Tiller’s former clinic building. We are committed to opening a full service women’s clinic to serve the women of Kansas. We want to provide full spectrum women’s reproductive health care. This includes abortion. The women of central and southern Kansas have been without full scale gynecological care including abortion services since Dr. Tiller’s murder in 2009. The population of this region is underserved by existing services. Women who need an abortion have to drive many miles to access these services. For the women of Wichita, Sedgwick County, and surrounding areas the closest providers are in central Oklahoma. Women who access abortion services often have family and work commitments that make it a great hardship to travel so far for health care services. There is a general lack of feminist-based gynecological and reproductive health services in this region and existing clinics cannot meet the need that exists in the community. We are committed to continuing the work of Dr. Tiller to serve the needs of this community. We know that we will face strong opposition before we even open.
Although we made a strong first step by purchasing the building; renovations must be done before we can open our doors. We need to upgrade the essentials, like electric and plumbing. We’ve got to add some walls and take others down. We need new flooring plus we need to upgrade our exterior fence. None of these things are cheap, but every dollar counts! If we could raise $5,000-that would help us get these renovations and upgrades started. This is your chance to make history and help women get the care they need and rightfully deserve. Help us open the doors.
