Helen and Fiona tell their story

Listen to an interview of two victim participants in the Sycamore Tree Project in Western Australia.

Fiona was randomly and violently sexually assaulted at the age of seven; Helen was sexually abused by her father, and later her stepfather, from the age of three. Both are sick and tired of sleepless nights and living in fear, so have turned to the Sycamore Tree Project in an attempt to move on.

Visit the ABC Radio National website to listen to the audio.
