About me

Help put an end to domestic violence.


Every minute, nearly 20 people are physically abused by an intimate partner. One in four women and one in seven men have been victims of severe physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime. These statistics are a rude wake up call that demand immediate action and attention. 


Survivors of domestic violence need our help. 


So many victims are afraid to pick up the phone and ask for help — from family, friends or even authority. So, so many of them are afraid to stand up to their abusers for fear of being abused more severely, or their children becoming the next targets. They're afraid of so much more than we can comprehend. 


Maitri is an organization of several dedicated individuals and volunteers working to put an end to this horrible epidemic and helping survivors integrate back into mainstream society. Their crisis intervention program helps survivors of domestic violence find the courage and the means to cope with their situation, in ways that go beyond just finding legal help. 


Here are just some of the many ways in which your donation will help Maitri and the survivors:  

  • Maitri can continue researching and enhancing the critical services they provide to the survivors, and more
  • Survivors will be better funded to pay for legal fees, buy groceries for themselves and their children, afford a decent shelter, afford providing their kids with stationary and books needed for school, and more  

There’s strength in numbers. Your support isn’t just a dollar amount. It is your voice that’s being added to this fight, to this community that’s fighting tirelessly. You are a significant aspect in ensuring we completely wipe away domestic violence.

Please stand with me in this fight to end domestic violence.
