“My husband told me that he would slit my throat if I dare take our children away.”

When my second son turned 16 months, he beat me up severely. The night before that, I had to leave my two children with chickpox fussing around at home, to look for him in the middle of his night gambling. The next afternoon, he was furious and rushed out to punch, slap, and kick me. I was knocked out on the floor. Every time I tried to stand up, he kicked me and I fell over again. It was repeated until I finally crawled to the front yard, where our neighbours ran over to intervene as they heard the screaming, and eventually took me to the hospital.
