TL;DR: Help me stop family violence!
Domestic violence is terrorism of the home. Imagine living in fear of someone who is supposed to love you - a spouse, partner, parent... even your own child. Your home becomes a virtual prison.
I feel strongly about this. That's why for 2018, I've decided to be a champion for the charity PAVE. I hope you can help!
WHAT IS PAVE?
Started by three social workers, PAVE is a pioneering family violence specialist centre. Put simply, they fight for healthier families, free from violence. They help survivors of abuse to heal, and counsel the 'abusers' in hopes that they will unlearn their violent behaviours. In 2018, PAVE will be opening a child protection specialist centre focusing on child victims of abuse.
WHY DO I SUPPORT PAVE?
"He threatened to beat up my elderly parents if I broke up with him"
"I had a young child, no job and was living in a foreign country. I was afraid of being stranded if I left him."
Over the years, I have encountered abuse survivors and heard their stories. One thing I have learnt is how difficult it can be to leave a violent relationship. This is something those of us who are in healthy relationships take for granted. It takes immense courage for those whose spirits have been eroded day after day to leave such relationships. I support PAVE because they journey with people who live in fear, and give them hope for a better future.
Give to PAVE and help make someone's life brighter!
