Challenge

Husbands working from home has quadrupled spousal abuse in Pakistan. According to a study carried out in 2009 by Human Rights Watch, it is estimated that between 20 and 30 percent of women in Pakistan have suffered some form of abuse. An estimated 5,000 women are killed per year from domestic violence, with thousands of others maimed or disabled. Women have reported attacks ranging from physical to psychological & sexual abuse from intimate partners. This has escalated during lockdown.

Solution

100% will go to help women get shelter, sanctuary and funds to get back on their feet.

Long-Term Impact

Saving lives, preventing or minimizing abuse, helping women, and reducing mental distress.
