Vaso Lleno hosting event for sexual abuse survivors

April 8, 2019

Earlier this year, Cris Gomar, the founder of the Vaso Lleno social outreach initiative, created a forum for survivors of sexual abuse to share their stories.

Gomar was so overwhelmed by the response that she has organized an event for victims that will be “full of love, support, affection and understanding.”

“No one is going to be forced to tell their story in any way,” Gomar wrote. “The idea is to see how we feel in this space, to help the victims, to generate a support network and to accompany them in their struggle.”

The event, called Reconstruí tu historia (Rebuild your story) will be held Tuesday from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Selina CoWork in Barrio Otoya, San José.

It will be moderated by Militza Castellot, a personal growth and transformation coach. Entries are limited and cost 5,000 colones (about $8.25) each.

The Tico Times is an in-kind sponsor of this event. Selina CoWork is donating the event space and is also an in-kind sponsor.

You can find Vaso Lleno’s form to submit stories of sexual abuse here. They are also on Facebook and Instagram.
