How Anthonia Ojenagbon is helping victims of sexual abuse heal
My name is Anthonia Ojenagbon. I used to be very very ashamed of my past because our society judges the person who was sexually abused while the abuser walks away freely.
I was also ashamed because l always thought it was my fault that l was molested so l was made to believe.
I was a church child, born and raised in church (Deeper life Bible Church). I just could not understand why this despicable act should be done to me but you know what?
Sexual violence does not know religion, race or class. It can happen to anyone and now l know it’s never the fault of the person who was abused. The shame belongs to the abuser not the abused.
The idea to start a support group for survivors of sexual violence came after l received professional help and returned from the mental health home where l checked myself when l could not cope again.
Are you like me who was betrayed by some of the most trusted men you know?
Are you still hurting and would like to heal?
Where you raped by a family member and your family has said you must not talk?
Is your family putting pressure on you to forgive and forget so you don’t bring disgrace to your Christian or Muslim family?
Do you want to meet with your sisters who have gone through similar pain?
Do you want a no judgment space to talk about this burden you have carried for so long?
Do you want to speak to people who absolutely understand you and will never judge you?
Then you must not miss this 4th of may 2019 Tonia Bruised But Not Broken Support Group Family Meeting for sexual violence survivors holding at Raddison Blu Hotel GRA Ikeja.
