How Can I Help Melinda?

Melinda is her name,

She had a head-ache one night.

Was brutally beaten by her husband for refusing to have sex with him.

She had a bruised face and recently had a miscarriage.

She refuses to report him to the police.

She is scared that her relatives will punish her for embarrassing her husband.

She won’t report because she depends on him,

It is painful to see Melinda go through this pain

What can we do to help Melinda and the numerous other women who are physically abused and are unable to report?
