Winners of Reach for change

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!

Upcoming bill for sexual crimes

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.


Knowit is supporting Wonsa

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!

Opening mingle!

On Monday the 20th of April we opened our beautiful clinic together with friends and family. Thanks to Berns chef Johan Lindqvist who cooked delicious canapés.


Thanks for making it possible!

Fundraising Foundation Wonsa and limited company Wonsa were registered in November 2014. In April 2015, we have given 80 trauma treatments, trained 80 doctors, conducted two therapist training programs and established two research collaboration with Karolinska Institutet. None of this would have been possible without all the wonderful people, companies and organizations who have helped and supported along the way.

Thank you!
Team Wonsa
