Battered Women Rescue and Support Project


We will provide material, emotional and legal support for women subjected to domestic violence by their partners. Our material support will be in the form of food, shelter and medical supply and long-term livelihood projects of their choice. Our legal support will be in the form of advice, referral to competent lawyers and aiding them in their long-drawn legal battles with those who have caused them harm.

Domestic violence is common but largely unseen in rural households here in the Philippines. Most often victims of domestic violence suffer in silence or will run away from their husbands bereft of material support and are helpless. Relatives and close friends seldom have the power to support them being poor themselves.


We will provide comprehensive support to battered women by providing them material goods, emotional support, legal advice and other needed support as per their specific needs. In so doing we ensure that their welfare is taken cared of and that they live meaningful lives free from suffering and neglect.

Long-Term Impact

The lives of battered women are often cruel and difficult. Domestic violence is far more common and most often hidden with victims choosing to remain silent. The need to change this situation is very important and will in the long run benefit the whole community.
