Love, Hope & Gratitude
From every wound
there is a scar,
and every scar tells a story.
A story that says
To provide appropriate shelter, comfort and support for people and animals, requiring a safe haven from abuse, abandonment or hardship.
The Love, Hope and Gratitude Foundation aims to raise community awareness and bring hope, love and support to those who need it most…. because no woman, man, child or animal should ever have to live in fear. We invite you to join us on our journey to help stop domestic violence and put an end to the suffering.
The statistics are frighteningCurrently in Australia, two women die through domestic violence every week and one child every two weeks. Not to speak of the hundreds who are injured.
Look at the people around you right at this moment;
She could be any age, any size, any hair colour, any eye colour
She may be wealthy, she may be homeless, she may be anywhere in between
She could speak any language, be any nationality or from any country
She might be the well-groomed lady driving the BMW who stops next to you at the traffic lights
She could also be the grey haired and softly spoken lady who you see each day riding on public transport
She may be the young mother sitting in the playground with her two small children
She could be the cleaner at your children’s school
She may serve your morning coffee at your favourite coffee shop
She might be sitting in the same executive business meeting that you are
She could be your boss, your employee, your friend, your family member
She may not even be a woman – he could also be any one of the above.
He or She could be you…
Domestic violence doesn’t discriminate by age, by gender, by race, by social standing, or by any other ways or means. The sad reality is that it can affect anyone, anywhere, anytime.
The fallout from domestic violence often has far greater reaching implications for our children and our pets; these are often the victims who suffer in silence. A question can be asked ... How would you feel if this was your daughter, sister, mother, or grandchildren?
