By Our Reporter

Socialite Judith Heard has launched her organisation dubbed “Day One Global” aimed at offering a safe space to rape and sexual assault victims to share their stories. She unveiled the organisation on Social Media where she also revealed she is a rape victim. She says she was raped by her uncle at the age of 15, and later at 17 by two armed security officers.

Here’s what she posted:

Today I stand with you. Today I present to you a new beginning, a place to hold that conversation. Am your day one.” I was defiled by my uncle at the age of 15, on the night before my final school exams and later on, at 17 raped by two army officers at gun point. As a young girl growing with big ambitions and bigger dreams , I was tormented by nightmares of what had happened to me in my earlier years.

Fortunately I had a loving and caring grandmother who I felt I could share this deepest and darkest secret with. Little by little i became self-aware of the things that i would do if only I was more confident and if I recognized my worth. All I needed from day one was a safe space where I felt I could share my story. My now deceased Grandmother took the time to listen to me and she told me that everything would be okay.

If we have more people willing to listen and believe, that would make life much easier for everyone. We (My team) have come up with an organization @dayonegl that seeks to end rape and sexual assault, aiming to create awareness and provide rehabilitation to survivors.

We believe in a culture of honesty and therefore employ an open door where people can freely communicate with each other. I stand to be the change for everyone challenged and subjected by any form of sexual assault, Join us today to save tomorrow’s super heroes.
