Pray for Tajikistan - facebook page

Research presented by Human Rights Watch says Tajik people largely appear to believe that women just need to tolerate domestic violence. In a survey, 97% of men and 72% of women believe that violence should be quietly endured for the sake of family happiness. Few women reported violence to the police and those that did said police didn’t take any action. There are only four women’s shelters in the whole country. With few options available, some women have chosen suicide as their way out. Though there is legislation in place, much education of authorities and communities needs to take place to change attitudes and practices.

Pray that women will encounter Jesus as their loving father, brother and friend (The Bible, 1 John 3:1).
