Dear ladies, Yesterday I had to help a friend(not very close) with 2 daughters to leave the country as she was unable to withstand any more beatings from her husband. She has been married for 5 years & I never knew anything about it before. It was such a scary & tense evening. Has anyone faced anything like this before?? There was so much to think about & plan in that short period that we felt so exhausted after the whole episode. We have the Indian Embassy & the ICBF doing everything possible for the labourers which is a good thing, but we dont seem to have anything in place either formally or informally to help ladies in these violent situations. I would appreciate any input that is available. Thanks & Regards, Seashell.
