My friend is a mother of 3 beautiful children. She stays with her partner but is very desperate to leave the relationship because of domestic violence, emotional and financial abuse. She has tried to leave before but financially it is impossible for her to provide a home and other necessities for her and the children. In the last couple of years things got worse and he is now hitting her in front of the children. This is really upsetting them. The worst part is if he wakes up in a bad mood and yells and criticise them before they have to leave for school and work.
They are emotionally tired and the children don’t want to go home after school anymore. She is tired of pretending to be okay when she gets to the office and I feel really sorry for the children. She will use the funds to rent a house for a few months until she can make a plan to buy a house. There is a 3 bedroom house for sale close to her work and their school that the owner wants to sell urgently at a lower price. This will be ideal as it is in a safe complex and there is a security guard at the gate who will stop anyone that is not welcome from coming in. Please help her.
