Often, the perpetrator is not a stranger but a friend,
someone familiar, a family member or an intimate partner.
Sexual Violence also usually happens in isolation.
Your support lets every woman know that you
in the most critical and difficult time in her life.
Please give generously and help us to end the violence against women and children.
Surrey Mobile Assault Response Team
We need $50,000 by December 31st to fund the SMART (Surrey Mobile Assault Response Team) program. SMART provides services over the phone, in-person, and in the community to anyone who has experienced a physical or sexual assault by a stranger or someone they know. Our team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to help you access emergency medical, legal and social services.
When a woman is assaulted in our community, there are only two hospitals that provide her with specialized emergency medical treatment: the Surrey Memorial Hospital and Abbotsford Regional Hospital.
Depending on where the attack occurred, it can take two hours or more to get her to the hospital for the critical care she needs.
This is where you, as a donor, can play a vital role.
Every minute is the difference
between life and death.
Your donations enable SMART to provide life-saving support and transportation to a woman in crisis within approximately 45 minutes. The speed in which our team responds is critical.
