5 Years Later: SAVE Foundation sees need for Corporate Responsibility, Harsher Laws on Domestic Violence

Liesl Daisley is a former victim of one of the worst situations in the world, when the man who supposed to love her decides she is his punching bag a la Chris Brown and Rihanna. Thankfully, she not only got out from the nightmare but rather than let the incident make her shy from Life she decided to use it as a means of moving forward and thus the SAVE foundation.

As usual, Government was on hand via Labour Min. Dr Esther Byer Suckhoo and Social Care Min. Steve Blackett who both pledged a bill with harsher laws against Domestic Violence is before Parliament with no timeline given when the Bill is reality or how it would be enforced

At an event held at the British High Commission, who has been a spearhead in combatting what has turned out to be a deadly scourge in Barbados recently, she took time to chat with both the Barbados Advocate and ourselves to state where she can see room for improvement and how she is grateful for the support which is apparent.

Ms Daisley is of the view since most companies in Barbados have a largely female cadre of staff, it would be natural for them to provide assistance, she noted it need not be by monetary support but allow or lend a complex not in use as a halfway house for victims of domestic violence who need a place to rest their head and settle their affairs before getting back to normal {CLICK ON FOLLOWING ICON FOR FULL AUDIO – TABLET OR SMARTPHONE USERS, PLEASE CLICK ON Ms Daisley’s NAME FOR THE AUDIO}

The creator of SAVE Foundation also finds too often, for one reason or another Police do not treat cases with the respect and urgency required {CLICK ON FOLLOWING ICON FOR FULL AUDIO – TABLET OR SMARTPHONE USERS, PLEASE CLICK ON Ms Daisley’s NAME FOR THE AUDIO}

Ms Daisley explained the Foundation currently has only one facility to help women who find themselves in dire straits, and if companies want to know how they can help then using derelict offices or providing means to spruce up the formerly abandoned places would make the SAVE Foundation go further {CLICK ON FOLLOWING ICON FOR FULL AUDIO – TABLET OR SMARTPHONE USERS, PLEASE CLICK ON Ms Daisley’s NAME FOR THE AUDIO}
