Get Up Woman: upholding 6 pillars to help save abused women’s lives

Moms are often the lifeblood of a household. Working side-by-side next to Dad creating a sustainable and healthy life for the kids, and off-course each other. The sad reality is that this scenario is more a fairytale in the everyday lives of most women in the world (stats here proves this).

Some women all over the world are losing themselves and their lives at the hands of their partners. The world has become a place where men use their intimate partners as an outlet to any anger that they feel. Mostly, the choices that they made, the jobs that they currently work at or just about any reason to be angry see men using the women in their lives as a punching bag. Too many times, media floods our lives with stories about men who killed their wives/ partners including their children.

For this reason, a group called Get Up Woman has taken on the initiative to fight for women. The Non-Profit Organization helps abused women leave their toxic relationships and finding a place of safety for her and her children. The organization assists her to the police station so that she may lay charges against her attacker. Once this is done, GUW attends any court hearings with her in support of a bail application being denied and moral support for the victim. Women in need are assisted with finding a permanent place to stay. She is aided with clothes, groceries, transport, electricity and any other necessary utilities that she requires.

For the last two years, the NPO has relied mainly on Crowdfunding from the Facebook group and realized that in order to assist more women that more funds are needed.
