Combatting violence against women across provinces
An Australian woman jailed for killing her husband said she had not heard of domestic violence and that what she experienced she thought was normal. She described being made to eat her food off the floor, like the dogs, this being the most benign of her degradations. To hold a mirror of Christian love against such brutality is to shine a light of exquisite riches. How can we not hold back from plugging the depths of our culture and our Christian teachings to raise the awareness of all human beings to the danger of gender-based superiority. The humiliation and subservience of any other human being to oneself is biblically unjust. It is violence against one created in the image and likeness of God.
a bruised reed he will not break, and a dimly burning wick he will not quench; he will faithfully bring forth justice. Isaiah 42:3
MU is planning a two year project across the dioceses of Uganda, Kenya and Southern Africa working within the Church and rural communities to combat GBV. As well as raising awareness Mu hope to support survivors and include perpetrators in the discussion. Our prayers are asked for increased knowledge and training and opportunities for women.
