Editorial: Crying shame

POSTED: 06/13/13 5:34 PM

That a sorely needed institution like Safe Haven has to send clients away because funding has dried up is a crying shame.

Domestic abuse is a serious issue that needs serious attention and organizations that serve to help abuse-victims are entitled to serious funding.

It is not enough that one Member of Parliament – Peridot Foundation founder Gracita Arrindell – speaks out against domestic violence. Parliament needs to speak out against abuse in unison and what’s more, it needs to find creative ways to make funding available for organizations that offer protection and some perspective to the most vulnerable citizens.

As always, no reaction to this situation from our politicians is also a reaction. It is something voters ought to keep in mind for the next elections.
