Victims of sexual abuse are finding support, care and the strength to move forward with their lives at the Transformation Powerhouse (TP), in East Ham, in East London.
This unique daycare centre, founded by Christian, Gee Abiah Patchett (above), 10 years ago, provides a listening ear to the people who visit the Centre. Gee believes this is an important aspect of the care TP gives. She explained, “One of the most damaging effects of abuse is that victims are not believed, nor feel they can talk freely about their ordeal. Coming to us, and feeling accepted and knowing that we do what we do because we care, makes a massive difference.”
One way people are hearing about TP is through monthly events, which feature gospel singing, testimonies from people who have overcome sexual abuse, and healing prayer.
Gee, who runs TP alongside her husband, Mark, recently received planning permission to build a residential centre that will provide respite for victims. She’s now praying that God will send some volunteers to work at TP along with her husband, so that they can continue providing care for the people who pass through their doors for spiritual healing.
