Far too many women are caught in the web of violence. We want to end the reality of women being abused by their partners, and we want women and children to live without the fear of being sexually assaulted or abused. Restore: Ending Violence Against Women is a free online resource is designed to provide helpful information about abuse and how to respond to it in our lives, communities and churches.
WICC has continually supported grassroots organizations fighting violence against women through prayer, grants and resources. In 2018, “Healing Waters” was updated and converted into this digital resource. Now called “Restore”, it is directly aligned with WICC’s mission to “bring hope to women touched by injustice”. We hope you find the information and resources to be helpful.
We are now launching an introductory podcast to help you explore the content of the Restore online resource. Together we can understand and act against violence.
