A call has been made for every religious organization in the country to break the silence on violence against women and children.
The Vicar General for the Anglican Church, Father Orisi Vuki made this statement as they launched a ‘SASA Faith program’ which is aimed at reducing this growing issue.
Father Vuki has called on all faith-based organizations to make their voices heard.
“The Church is complicit in the perpetuation of violence by not speaking out, by not standing and not making a stand clearly on this issue.”
With the SASA Faith project aimed at reducing violence against women in communities, Father Vuki says the Anglican Church’s stance on the issue is clear.
“There will be Zero tolerance of violence within our homes, our schools, our communities, and our church.”
The project is funded by the European Union and the Australian government.
