Portugal breaks the silence about abuse

Inter-European Division (EUD)

The seashore route of the 10km walk in Portugal attracted a biker

[Portugal] Community activities that bring awareness to domestic violence and other forms of abuse often bring together several ministries of the Church.

Women's Ministries leaders worked with the Youth Ministries and Pathfinder leaders to organize a seaside 10km walk for enditnow, June 6, 2015, in Espinho, Portugal. Abuse awareness is designated by the color orange in Europe, so participants carried orange balloons, and some draped orange scarves around their necks.

Other activities of the June 5-7 weekend included churches in the region coming together for discussion and training based on the Women's Ministries initiative Break the Silence about Abuse.
