Domestic violence is any action or behaviour from a partner or spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend or family member that aims to control you. For some, this is physical violence, for others it takes the form of verbal, emotional, sexual or financial abuse.
If you are experiencing abuse or domestic violence, you do not have to deal with this on your own. Staff from 2 hotlines that support people experiencing abuse and domestic violence in Benin can help. Contact them if these signs of abuse sound familiar:
Victims of abuse and domestic violence can be in a difficult position. They once had (or still have) love for the abuser. On the other hand, they are constantly exposed to harm from someone who should love them back. This can feel puzzling and scary.
It’s normal if you feel isolated. Victims of abuse and domestic violence are exposed to extreme stress and often go through it alone. Even though it might feel difficult to share what you are going through, hotline staff in Benin will listen, try to understand – and help you.
If you are ready to talk to someone about your experiences of abuse or domestic violence, you can contact a hotline in Benin for free and confidential support.
