“I was subjected to constant physical violence by my husband. It got to a point where he started raping me. I would always remain silent because of the kids, until he beat me so badly that I collapsed and was hospitalised. The shelter is arranging for me to go back to living with him. He is to sign a vow declaring to never attack me again physically. I have no other option. I have nowhere else to go and I don’t want to lose the custody of my children.”
