The Wellbeing Foundation Africa is creating awareness of the human and emotional cost of domestic violence. The organisation has launched a short Domestic Violence documentary which voices the experiences of gender-based violence victims. Given that over 50% of Nigerian women are abused by their husbands, this video argues for the complete eradication of gender-based violence and a milestone in the campaign is to amplify public awareness of domestic violence and empower victims to voice their experiences without reproach.

In partnership with local agencies such as Project Alert Nigeria which helped give voices to victims, the film documents the personal stories of Katherine Obiang, ‘Jane,’ Hadiza Zaaki-Azzay and Abimbola; and the impact of domestic violence on their lives.

In the past year, we have read more stories of domestic violence related deaths and with a culture of silence, the issue can only get worse.

    Its so sad to see and even know how much women are put on by men.Im being honest,as a man lots of guys will agree with me when i say to women/victims of abuse that if they have brothers they should let them know.
    Im not advocating violence here,but ive got only one sister and she knows,given my somewhat diffrent approach to life,that should any man ever beat her,then i will panel beat his being to within a heartbeat of death.
    If i cant handle him then i will pay area boyz to deal with the fool.
    Most women beaters dont fight men,i wonder why.
    For all you guys who know your sister is being beaten and do nothing apart from send her to church,shame on you all.What you dont want people to know abi?Family pride comes first and blah blah blah.
    Its a sad sign of male insecurity when you have to batter your woman.Im not a shrink but why the hell do it?
    Maybe i just come from a diffrent strand of mankind,but guys date my sister with good intentions. I beg una
