As per today, Wonsa have a new phone number. Our new number is:
010-12 90 900
Wonsa is addressing the lack of a government financed care and trauma treatment in Sweden, for children and adults exposed to sexual abuse.
It is time for our politicians and decision makers to admit that this is a serious problem, to take a stand and make a change.
Today we were on the Swedish public news TV again, showing and talking about Wonsas work and our specialized clinic. Unfortunately this is only sent i Swedish, but 1 minut into this clip you will find the interview:

Happy new year 2016!
2015 was an eventful year for Wonsa -world of no sexual abuse.
During the year we opened our first clinic in Gamla Stan i Stockholm for people that have been sexually abused. At our clinic we have per today performed around 600 physiological trauma treatment hours and we currently have 40 patients signed up for treatment.
But, we still need your help in financing all or parts of our treatments while we are continuing our work and efforts in making the Swedish “Landsting” and government admitting our patient group and prioritizing public healthcare fundings for organizations like Wonsa.
If you are currently in Sweden please help us by using Swish: 123 900 4821 or SMS: WONSA followed by 50, 100, 200 or 500 to number 72901 and you will donate the corresponding amount.
If you are abroad from Sweden, please do not hesitate to send us an e-mail for more information about co-operations and support.
Thank you for spreading our message, the world needs more people like you!
Lovisa Fhager Havdelin has been a member of the board since the beginning of the Wonsa foundation.
Vi are now happy to announce that Lovisa has been awarded the UN supporter of the year 2015 and also selected to participate in the 2016 Anna Lindh Academy‘s leadership programs on human rights.
Gita Rajan and Hermine Holm have been appointed Change Leaders in the competition Reach for Change, which is organized by Kinnevik together with Metro and Tele2 amongst others.
The prize is both intellectual and financial capital – which gives us the ability to be persistent and can keep on offering help and treatment to those who have been sexually abused – in the waiting for public funding so everyone who needs it can receive help.
Thanks to Reach for Change!
On this Friday we were invited to a hearing from the 2014 official committee inquiring the Swedish law for sexual crimes. The committee is proposing a new bill, including an important upgrade of the existing law.
One of the most important parts of the new bill will be that the law is taking a stand on the perspective of voluntariness. If you do not make sure that the other person is actively expressing his/her voluntarily participation in a sexual act, then you might be committing a sexual crime.
This is a very important step for the Swedish law, and Wonsa is looking forward to the upcoming complete proposals from the committee in 2016.
Thanks to fantastic Knowit we continue making the world a better place!
Wonsa is growing fast and Knowit donates 500 working hours, starting this fall 2015, to create a professional infrastructure for Wonsa. That way we can secure the quality of our administrative systems, increase the effectiveness at the clinic and in our research. In addition information becomes more accessible to our co-workers and volunteers.
Thank you so much!
We are proud to announce that Wonsa have been assigned a Swedish 90-account for fundraising, which is a quality assurance for all of our donors.
Our new 90-account is: 90 04 82-1
As of the agreement for 90-accounts, all of Wonsas fundraising will further on be under supervision by the authority “Svensk Insamlingskontroll”.
