Survivors – domestic violence in Nicaragua

Survivors tells the powerful stories of two women who have survived domestic violence in Nicaragua and how Trocaire is helping…

At least 80 women die every year due to male violence in Nicaragua. Many women are victims of abuse, violence, and humiliation in their own homes. More than 90% of these incidences go unpunished.

The women in this documentary are representative of the 839 women involved in a Gender Based Violence programme supported by Trocaire in Nicaragua.
