Help Stop Military Family Violence

Project Report | May 12, 2020
You helped Zyanya!

By Paula Lucas | Founder & Executive Director

Zyanya is a civilian wife accompanying her American military husband abroad. Their marriage has been difficult overseas. Zyanya's husband becomes violent when he drinks alcohol. At first it was once in a while. But now at least once a week, he comes home after drinking, insults her, accuses her of having affairs, then demands sex and if she doesn't comply, he will become physically violent.

He apologizes the next morning, cries and swears it will never happen again, But it does, over and over again.

Zyanya loves her husband but she is done being abused. Pathways' helped Zyanya understand her options and helped her return home to the USA.

Her husband was furious she left but has now agreed to get help for the drinking and the violence.

Zyanya is thankful for all of the help Pathways' provided as she works through life back at home while her husband receives treatment.

Thank you for helping Zyanya! The Pathways' Team.
