On the 25 November, which also was International day against violence against women. I was severely beaten by my husband of eight years. At six in the morning my seven year old daughter was awaken by my screams for help.

I was slammed into the wall, cuffed in the abdomen and breast, beaten in the head and most of all publicly humiliated.

I feel broken with no where to turn and no one to help me.I am especially afraid of what this is doing to my child.
