Reach out to a hotline in Tanzania for support with abuse and domestic violence

Many women, children, and men in the world are victims of domestic violence – this is any behaviour that maintains control over a spouse, partner, family member, or girlfriend/boyfriend. Abuse may be expressed physically, emotionally, verbally, sexually, or financially, and you may feel threatened, controlled or coerced.

Setting free from an abuser may feel impossible. You are probably terrified and feel trapped. However, many victims of abuse and domestic violence have made it. With the help of 2 hotlines in Tanzania that support with abuse and domestic violence, you can live without having to endure these symptoms of abuse:

  • Your partner/family member yells at you
  • Being taken advantage of financially
  • Your partner/family member has told you they will commit suicide if you leave
  • Your belongings and property being destroyed
  • Your devices are being monitored or tracked by a partner/family member
  • Your partner/family member constantly checks up on you
  • Being forced to have sex or perform other sexual activities that you don’t want to
  • Your partner/family member has an unpredictable, violent temperament, and they direct the anger at you

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 Tanzania will listen, try to understand – and help you.

For free and confidential support with abuse and domestic violence, consider contacting a hotline in Tanzania today.
