There are an estimated 12 'honour' killings
each year in the UK although the exact number is unknown. Honour abuse often has multiple perpetrators (including women)
from the immediate and extended family and sometimes the community at large which makes prosecutions extremely difficult.
Whether you are at risk or are concerned for someone that is, trained staff from the KarmaNirvana organisation are available to listen and help, offering confidential support to both victims and professionals. Call on 0800 5999 247.
Let's pray for those who live in fear of honour crimes and for those working to change mindsets.
We pray for courage to speak up and find help.
