The need is real…
Every 3 Days. In Canada, women are 6x more likely to be murdered by their partner after she decides to leave. As of 2020, a woman is killed by her intimate partner every 2.5 Days!!!
Every 11 Minutes. Globally, approximately 81,000 women and girls were killed in 2020. About 47,000 (58%) of them were murdered by their intimate partner or family member. This means that a woman or girl is killed every 11 minutes!!!
In British Columbia. Over 1 Million woman experienced physical and sexual abuse as a teenager. Over 1,000 physical and sexual assaults against women happen each week. Every year, more than 60,000 assaults are committed, almost all of which were committed by men.
Together we can make a difference. Each dollar raised and every step taken will make it easier for women and children in our communities to walk away safely from violence… They deserve our help and our encouragement that a brighter future is possible. I also recognize that educating our youth about building healthy relationships is the key to breaking the cycle of family violence in Canada.
