Stop Gender-Based Violence during crises
Jennifer Lawil is a 30-year-old woman living with her husband and children in Paromo village, Uganda – When the government announced a country-wide lockdown on the onset of COVID-19 pandemic in March everything changed for them.
“When my husband’s business of operating a small bar and being a builder was halted, he stopped being cooperative at home; He would return home drunk and when he didn’t find dinner ready, he would start beating me not minding whether the children were there or not. When he became violent, I sought help from the Local Council and they referred me to ActionAid as they were well known to help families during crisis”. Jennifer Lawil – Uganda.
