As citizens worldwide are been called to stay home to flatten the curve, numbers have shown that domestic violence is on the rise. Confined with abusive partners during the MCO, this violence is exacerbated by economic stressors like pay cuts and retrenchment.

Just in Malaysia alone, Woman’s Aid Organization (WAO) received 44% increase in calls and enquiries through their domestic violence hotline just between February – March 2020. Through this unprecedented period, not only does WAO continue to provide shelter to abused women and children, but also access to mental health support.

By supporting WAO, Hong Leong Foundation knows that WAO can continue to help those in need so these women need not suffer in silence alone.
