IN CARE: Girls found in raid

It's 3am. Martina, the trained volunteer from the Rape Crisis Centre who is on duty tonight, is woken up by the telephone ringing. It's the nurse from the Sexual Assault Treatment Unit (SATU) in the Rotunda Hospital on the line.

A 24-year-old woman will be coming into the unit in 30 minutes. She has been sexually assaulted by her husband. Martina dresses quickly and drives the 15 minutes to the hospital.
