Our goal at CC♥Labelle is to empower and inspire women to become “strong, fearless & confident”.
“No Dolls Just Warriors”
We place the highest value on women’s independence, freedom and respect in society and fight against Domestic Violence and Abuse against women and children.
Domestic violence and emotional abuse are behaviors used by one person in a relationship to control the other.
Examples of abuse include:
name-calling or putdowns
keeping a partner from contacting their family or friends
stopping a partner from getting or keeping a job
actual or threatened physical harm
Violence can be criminal and includes physical assault (hitting, pushing, shoving, etc.), sexual abuse (unwanted or forced sexual activity), and stalking. Although emotional, psychological and financial abuse are not criminal behaviors, they are forms of abuse and can lead to criminal violence.
Anyone can be a Victim!
Victims can be of any age, sex, race, culture, religion, education, employment or marital status. Although both men and women can be abused, most victims are women. Children in homes where there is domestic violence are more likely to be abused and/or neglected. Most children in these homes know about the violence. Even if a child is not physically harmed, they may have emotional and behavior problems.
If you are being abused, REMEMBER
1. You are not alone
2. It is not your fault
3. Help is available
We have therefore chosen to support and partner with the following main charities, whose focus is to help and assist Women and Children who are victims of domestic abuse – physical, verbal, financial and/or sexual.
THE DUBAI FOUNDATION FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN (DFWAC)
