Why Domestic Abuse?

Posted on February 18, 2015 at 7:55 PM Comments comments (0)
I was inspired to take on domestic abuse as my social issue growing up as a child one of my cousins was a victim of abuse. The father of her children verbally and physical abused her. His fist bruised her and his words pierced her soul,as the tears rolled down her face. We became helpless when our attempts failed in removing her from a life of anguished. She was paralized by her fears, and the safety of her own life. Journey collections would like to continue to use its plat form to raise awareness and to empower those men and women who have suffered such similar situations, we are asking that you join forces with us for the greater good and rid our world of such demise.
