South Down Action for Healing Wounds was established in January
1999, to provide help and support to innocent victims of terrorist violence in the South Down Area.
We are a Victims Support Self-help Body made up principally
of the families of people murdered or maimed in South Down.
Our membership is drawn from both Security Force Families
SDAHW is non-political in its agenda and
non-sectarian in its practice.
We have a twelve person committee, which is made up
of individuals who live in the South Down Area and have had their lives tragically affected by terrorism. The Committee's
Chairperson is currently Samuel Ringland.
Our Organisation presently has a membership of 80, plus their
extended families which broadens the figure to approximately 400 people in the South Down Area.
