Christopher Meloni : (on working with rape victims outside the show)
Mariska has her own foundation. She helps with survivors of sexual abuse - they go swimming with wild dolphins.
My wife and I are involved in the Montefiore Children's Center. They are out of the Bronx. They are the first hospital to do this. If a person comes into the emergency room and there is a hint or suggestion of sexual abuse or blatantly a rape victim, they have on site rape counselors. They have been able to do some good.
I tell you I have had a lot of rape survivors and sexual abuse survivors come up to me and give me a big hug and say 'your show has really helped me profoundly.' I tell you it's the best feeling in the world. It is larger than you.
