Women Wellness center main purpose is to help in minimizing the stress, anguish, embarrassment and long reporting process to which a survivor is usually subjected. We do this through the provision of free medical treatment and psychosocial support and legal aid to survivors of gender based violence. The aim of the wellness center is centralizing all the support services in one location makes the experience more humane, thus, eventually overcoming the current reluctance of many to seek support when they are abused. Sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) is a serious problem in Somalia especially in IDP camps. SGBV refers to all forms of violence that happen to women and men because of the unequal power relations between them. SGBV is in most cases directed at women because women have less power and status in most parts of Somalia due to the prevalence and history of patriarchal societies.
