A MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDER TO ALL FAITH LEADERS

These statistics have been provided to bring awarenessabout the severity of homicide due to domestic violence. In times of family crisis, tragedy and adversity, the CHURCH has been entrusted with the duty to take action for the sake of humanity.

 

Faith leaders, please, take action now. Please preach against domestic violence from the pulpit during Sunday Service. The word of the Lord can help in lowering these numbers and help to preserve innocent lives.
