Story of a survivor of Domestic Violence:
“I am pregnant and the baby’s father is extremely abusive verbally and physically. I have been terrified for so long and more with the baby to be delivered soon. I was at the hospital yesterday, he was with me, he never leaves my side anymore. I had an examination so the consultant asked me to lie on the bed and drew the curtain. I leant over and took the pen out of his pocket, pulled his hand over to me and wrote HELP ME. I didn’t have to say a word. This campaign gave me the strength and the idea of how to ask for help. I am safe somewhere else now thanks to that consultant and the black dot campaign. Thank you, 1 week to go until my due date and I am finally safe.”
