Domestic violence again. No access to justice in uganda

Here in my area due to the lock down, access to justice has been defeated. A woman was stabbed by her husband in the eye and we tried to get redress from the police but all in vain. All because of Covid 19. This woman is bleeding and in pain. Our hands are tied and the perpetrator is free.

I am so sorry to hear that this is happening in your community @sanyudiana. A number of justice groups have identified the fact that, unfortunately, during a crisis, trajectories on gender based violence are likely not going to improve. A number of resources for legal empowerment practicioners, including around issues of gbv can be accessed in the COVID-19 online space here.
