SURGIR - "Lives lost, lives found"

A movement which individually targets the defence and rescue of girls and women subjected to criminal traditions, martyrs in their souls and their bodies, with their children. Mutilated, prostituted, raped, rejected, burnt, lapidated, held hostage, designated victims so chosen because they are females. They can be found all over the world. Adolescents and women enslaved, girls kept illiterate and in bondage, girls sexually mutilated, women raped during wars, widows with AIDS rejected with their children, girls and women killed in the name of family honour, women assassinated for lack of dowry, etc.

SURGIR is a Swiss Foundation, based in Lausanne and set up from articles 80 and following of the Civil Code. SURGIR is neither a political nor a religious movement.
