To relieve the distress and suffering experienced by men, woman and children, resident in Nigeria who have been maltreated by an intimate partner. We offer support and assistance to both men, women and children experiencing family domestic violence. We aim to educate the public and partner agencies in the causes and effects of family domestic violence and ending such violence against couples and their young children. We endeavor to work together with other agencies to tackle violence against parents/children. Domestic abuse and relationship breakdowns, often combined with alcohol abuse, were found to be the major triggers of most victims who took their own lives.
