Domestic violence can be of many natures and it is a major social problem in many parts of the world. Various countries have different laws about it.
As per Wikipedia, the definition of domestic violence is as follows:
“Domestic violence, also known as domestic abuse, spousal abuse, battering, family violence, and intimate partner violence, is a pattern of behavior which involves the abuse by one partner against another in an intimate relationship such as marriage, cohabitation, dating or within the family. Domestic violence can take many forms, including physical aggression or assault (hitting, kicking, biting, shoving, restraining, slapping, throwing objects, battery), or threats thereof; sexual abuse; emotional abuse; controlling or domineering; intimidation; stalking; passive/covert abuse (e.g., neglect); and economic deprivation.”

I strongly urge you to support this cause and help men, women and kids in need with your donations.
