About Ruhama

NOT A SEX WORK/SEX WORKER POSITIVE ORGANIZATION –

FROM RUHAMA WEBSITE –

Ruhama is a voluntary organisation, based in Dublin and works on a national level, with women affected by prostitution and other forms of commercial sexual exploitation.

Ruhama is Hebrew for ‘renewed life’.

The organisation is predominantly a frontline service and began its work in 1989, as an outreach service to women in street-based prostitution.

Over the years the service has evolved and adapted to meet the needs of women. Some of these changes reflect the changing nature of the Irish sex trade which has become more globalised, predominantly indoors and controlled by organised crime.

    Ruhama are an hypocritical nightmare that has never offered anything that was not conditional upon compliance with outright fiction and even then, never offer anything of real use beyond fostering dependence on them.

    They treat sex workers as if they were pound dogs see:
