To let victims feel comfortable during the treatments, RainLily accompanies the victims to receive medical services and also explains the medical procedures that will take place.
The rape crisis centre has a homely design which has a warm and safe atmosphere.
Our counselors will follow through each case providing psychological support, psychological assessment, and counseling service to the victims. Referral to clinical psychologists for assessment can also be arranged, if needed.
RainLily's counseling groups provide a platform for the treatment of trauma for clients.
In the group, clients receive comfort and support from fellow “travellers” in a safe atmosphere to release negative emotions and learn how to stay strong on the way to recovery.

Apart from providing basic legal information for them, RainLily also provides emotional support and accompanies the victims to undergo the relevant legal procedures including taking statements, attending trial and meeting the Equal Opportunities Commission.
