Abuse In Relationship

Majority of the Abused say “We don't want the relationship to end”.

This fact about "crazy love" surprises many people. How could you still love someone who has hurt you?

The answer is as complicated as love itself. The victims tend to be hope junkies, open-hearted and optimistic. They believe that their loved ones are capable of change. Some would say they are naïve. Others say they are too kind or too forgiving. Often they cannot find the courage to leave an abusive relationship until their life (or our children's safety) has been threatened.

When victims end an abusive relationship, the first thing they need is shelter. It is a practical request -- a roof over their heads. But it is also an emotional one -- the deep need to seek safety and to protect their children from danger.

Many victims know instinctively what friends and family usually don't: The most lethal time in an abusive relationship is after you leave. More than 70% of domestic violence murders happen after the victim has gotten out.

The second most common request also surprises people; Victims say that after immediate shelter, what they need most is legal advice and representation. Any woman who is going to turn herself from domestic violence victim to a domestic violence survivor needs this service.

Madiba Foundation as a non-profit organization envisage to joined forces with Volunteer Lawyers. The volunteer lawyers' group will provide mentoring, training, court appearance scheduling and malpractice insurance. The Foundation’s Volunteer Lawyers plan to help more than 2,000 family violence survivors during this 2017 year calendar. The Volunteer lawyers will donate more pro bono legal hours.

Madiba Foundation will give more information regarding the launch of volunteer lawyers shortly. Keep perusing our website for more details.

    How long does a copyright last on newspaper articles?. . If a service copies newspapers articles and then posts it in a database on the Internet, is there also a copyright on the Internet content?.
