Rape Victims from Ayder Referral Hospital Records

The following table contains official record of sexual violence victims from Ayder Referral Hospital in Mekelle.



Editor’s note: this story and data is taken from Mekelle times, a monthly Mekelle-based clandestine publication. We are taking out this part from the publication and publishing it here because we believe it deserves to be seen without being buried in other stories. The rest of the publication will be published soon. We have published one of Mekelle Times’ monthly publication before, A Diary of events from Mekelle.

The following table contains official record of sexual violence victims from Ayder Referral Hospital in Mekelle. There is a similar list of several victims who have been treated at Mekelle Hospital, Kassech Clinic and Elshsaday sanctuary. However, Mekelle Times is unable to get additional data from these hospitals and clinics due to limited resources, privacy concerns and other factors. 

As one can see from the table, most  victims are under age girls who were brought to the hospital by their parents. Other victims, especially adults above the age of 20, choose to live with their wound due to stigma and public shaming.
