RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia Commonwealth University students are assembling so-called after-care kits for survivors of child abuse, sexual assault and domestic violence.

Volunteers are assembling 355 of the kits on Tuesday night. Each kit contains clothing and toiletries to meet the immediate physical and emotional needs of survivors.

The effort is sponsored by VCU Health Systems and the nonprofit Fear 2 Freedom, which is dedicated to redeeming and restoring the lives of victims of abuse.

According to VCU, Fear 2 Freedom has provided more than 8,000 kits to those affected by sexual abuse and domestic violence over the past three years.
