Adventists come out against domestic violence

Social Share

End it now!
That was the strong message sent by the Women’s Ministry of the Seventh-day Adventist Church as they staged a sensitisation march against domestic violence that climaxed at the Emerald City car park in Six Roads, St Philip, yesterday.  
There were women, men and children with placards bearing messages such as Let’s Talk It Out, Love Should Not Hurt, Child Abuse: See It, Hear It, Report It, and Say No To Violence. Members distributed literature on domestic violence and offered counselling through their family life ministry.
Acting director of the Bureau of Gender Affairs, Nalita Gajadhar, in addressing the session, outlined some of the amendments coming to the Domestic Violence Act. She called on church people not to keep silent about any forms of domestic abuse.
