Dear Valued Supporter,

So here we are again, a year later and still going strong. Where would we be without your support?

I want to thank you on behalf of WWHMC for all the support you have given over the last year - it is very much appreciated.

Last year you showed up in your numbers to mark the official launch of WWHMC and it was a fantastic night. We hope to repeat the success of the evening on the 14th of October 2017 at Drapers’ Hall, London.

So what’s happened in the last year? Well this year has seen a lot a lot of light being shed on the causes that WWHMC stands for.

We have seen the light shone on the sexual abuse that was going on in football a number of years ago. It has been really encouraging to see these men finally find their voice to speak up and speak out. We know it will encourage other men to come forward and get the well needed support that was denied them as boys.

The Prime Minister is demanding more for victims of domestic violence and has backed this up by including in the domestic abuse bill, prosecuting U.K. citizens that commit violence against women and girls abroad so they can be tried in the U.K. for their crimes abroad. This is really huge considering this may open the door for other forms of abuse committed outside the country to prosecuted here.

It is so important that each and every one of us takes personal responsibility to look out for the young and the vulnerable, to prevent abuse through purposeful and deliberate actions.

Though these awful ills are still being committed, it is imperative that we break the spine of silence, stigma and secrecy within hard to reach groups wherever those groups may be.

Rape, sexual abuse and domestic violence are no respecter of persons, nor do they ask for permission to kill, steal and destroy; it is our job to make a difference and to stand up and be counted.

This very special event signifies the journey of the work, heart and passion of Who Will Hear My Cry, to show our continued commitment to the protection of women and children and to show that we care and are here to make a difference; we are here to help and to heal...

We hope to raise much needed funds on the evening and beyond, to continue our work.

WWHMC would like you to know that whether it's your time, your donations or partnering with us - it does make a difference to us and those who rely on our services to give them a voice.

May I take this opportunity to thank you in advance for your on-going support, it is very much appreciated.

I and the rest of the team look forward to seeing you on Saturday, 14th of October 2017, for another splendid evening at the prestigious Drapers' Hall, London to celebrate with us.

Warmest regards,


Dilys Sillah
