Welcome to Aufrecht

Sexual Abuse Survivor came to life when I and my sister made a decision to move on and recover. We were sexually abused as children, and for years, we have chosen to not speak a word about it. However, healing is not possible without letting the truth out. We decided to share our story to the public and got surprised to know how many other women share the same sentiments and dark pieces of the past.

This platform is established to make a safe place for all the survivors and let them share their stories, no matter how painful, anonymously. We believe that after letting it out, recovery follows. We aim to create a safe and supportive environment for all the women out there who share the same secrets that are usually viewed as unspeakable. Sponsored by Homewares Insider, we encourage everyone to think otherwise and consider it a necessary step towards healing and complete freedom. Your story could influence other survivors to recover and move on as well.

If you believe in the same cause, contact us and share your story of no more than 1000 words. The stories will all be featured anonymously.
