Beating the Odds

Blessed New Year greeting to all our Board of Directors, clients, friend, and supporters of Mary Open Doors and to the GlobalGiving teams. Margaret Mead once said, “It only takes a few committed people to change the world indeed it’s the only thing that ever has”.

In the last three months, we have accommodated five families affected by domestic violence the nature of these cases varies.  Two out of the five cases was incest. One was a returned family. In total, we had four new and I returned the case. We had some very challenging times but our gratefulness far out weights the challenges. One client had Covid but the children were all negative. We experience the amazing compassion of our friends and supporters coming to her aid and for this we are grateful. Women are strengthened by the many trials they experience as they continue to single-handedly seek to provide protect and guide their children. But the most heartbreaking part is the effect this has on the children. With covid and the flood experienced in the latter part of 2020, we have definitely seen the rise in domestic violence.

As a part of the annual 16 days of activism, against gender-based violence, on 23rd Dec. Our President Mrs. Particia Flores represented Mary Open Doors with the Women’s Commission on the Channel 5 TV show Open Your eyes, discussion focus on why it’s hard to understand why victims of Domestic Violence remain in abusive relationships. They wanted to offer the professionals the opportunity to share about the cycle of violence that traps victims of Domestic Violence. They also wanted to share information about the services available and where you can go for help.  We have also received a donation of cleaning supplies and hand sanitizers, masks to assist us with following the protocol regarding COVID-19.
