      @see I’ll have to agree with you 110% the step by steps would have been good. But we let it all build up now it’s out of control. It’s just best to just address all violence act. Also some of your ambassadors need to start setting examples. Don’t keep them on because their locally popular when they an encouragement of bad doings.

    I am using my real name so anyone who knows me can ask me anything and I will answer them truthfully. Domestic violence have many ranges. It can be spouse against spouse, parents against children, children against parents, grandparents or other family members who live in the household. Violence can be physical, emotional or oral. I even know workers at social development who are victims themselves, so how can they give advice to others. Workers need counseling too. Too long people are quiet about violence in their homes because the fear the backlash of embarrassment or if reported, they will receive more violence against them. This support network is very much needed and I hope this will be made aware to people island wide. Not just one demonstration but continual showing of support.

    CCT needs to fix their internet network first thats priority. They should also reduce the cost of their service because we still have to pay full price for service we are not receiving.
