NIGERIAN SINGER & DAUGHTER MURDERED BY ITALIAN HUSBAND IN BANANA ISLAND This is just one of the million effects of domestic violence especially as it affects women and children. A lot of times, victims of domestic violence claim they stay in the marriages for their children but the children are the worst hit by the violence. The psychological trauma of seeing frequent violence and in this case death of an innocent child should never be overlooked. #engine #engineII #enginefct #enginemodels #girlchildrights @mercycorps @rita_alo
