가정폭력에 저항하는 지역사회

2006.11.16
Rhonda Kanadari is the mother of 9-year-old Nakina. She lost her youngest daughter barely two months ago. Rhonda is a victim of domestic violence; at home her husband raped her. SOUNDBITE: (English), Rhonda, mother, victim of domestic violence “…I knew he is a cruel man and I can’t forgive him for this…and for five years I have been a victim of violence.” Rhonda is not alone. In Papua New Guinea an estimated one million children live in violent homes and experience high levels of violence. SOUNDBITE: (English), Bruce Grant, UNICEF Child Protection officer, “Violence against girls and young women, women generally in PNG is a major issue. There is something like 80 reported sexual assault cases per 100,000 people which is one of the highest rates in the world.” The one place Rhonda and Nakina can turn to was here. The Family Support Center, at Port Moresby‘s General Hospital. The women who make it here are given shelter, counselling and legal advice. These simple support services are vital. Too many women are afraid to report domestic violence attacks. Even fewer dare to press charges. In Morata, a poor settlement in the capital of Port Moresby, the community women, with support and encouragement from the newly formed Community Policing unit, are working to find their own solutions. They created their own safe house and system of protection. When the bell rings, they all know that one of them needs help. Besides running regular community activities, the women here have their own blue uniforms which acknowledge their status and role in community policing. Sergeant Katrina Dickson helped to establish the group. She knows there needs to be a much more proactive policing policy. A policy that works, teaches communities to protect their own rights. SOUNDBITE: (English), Sergeant Dickson “…..unless the community knows this is a crime then the community will fall in line. It’s just that we’re not disseminating information to the community that if you bash a woman it is a crime.” Traditionally, domestic violence was rare in Papua New Guinea’s tribal groups. The women here are hoping to reverse the trend and are now finding increasing protection from more effective policing and from within their own communities. *** Asset Name : UNICEF: Papua New Guinea – communities unite against domestic violence Asset Duration: 02 min 34 secs Shoot City: Port Moresby Shoot Country: Papua New Guinea Shoot Date: Oct. 15, 200
