[Cancelled] International Women's Day Benefit: Lend a Healing Hand hosted by the Beyond Innocence FoundationOther / Amsterdam
08 March 2014, 7pm
In honour of International Women's Day, the Beyond Innocence Foundation (BIF) will be hosting a benefit in Amsterdam with the theme of Lend A Healing Hand.
About the Beyond Innocence Foundation
BIF is a non-governmental organisation founded in 2013 by Martha Mghendi as a response to the extreme amount of child abuse cases taking place in Taita District of Kenya.
Working both in Kenya and the Netherlands, Mghendi noticed a lack of a safe places or therapeutic centres where Kenyan children suffering abuse and associated traumas could go to seek help and recover.
BIF is working to fill this need by constructing a safe house, home and rescue centre for minors who have been abused. The home is the only one of its kind thus far in Taita Taveta County and will offer shelter to sexually, emotionally and physically abused minors, including those running away from early or forced marriages.
In addition to providing a safe haven, BIF will also provide the children with counselling and the opportunity to continue their education.

Lend a Healing Hand Benefit
Recognising the importance of International Women's Day, BIF is looking to bring attention to those women who are not so fortunate or are living in difficult circumstances.
March 8 is meant to celebrate the economic, political and economic achievements of women.
While honouring this message, BIF is also looking for those who have been successful to support those children who are not; as, after all, today's girls are tomorrow's women.
The benefit will consist of a dinner with a three-course meal, with all of the proceeds going to the construction of the Safe House and Rescue Centre for the Beyond Innocence Foundation in Mwatate, Kenya.
