enditnow Campain  - Adventists Say NO to Violence Against Women
 
"The EndItNow campaign, which expends to more than 200 countries and territories, in partnership between the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) and the Department of Women's Ministries of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, calls Adventists…. around the world to work in their communities to stop violence against women and girls. While EndItNow focuses on violence against women and girls, abuse of any kind should never occur against men or women. This campaign aims to highlight abuse against women because the majority of victims of gender-based violence are indisputably women. Seventh-day Adventists affirm the dignity and worth of each human being and decry all forms of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. EndItNow is a call to action for all Adventists and supporters to stand up and put into practice those principles we hold true."

"I hope and I pray, and I will do my part so that this will make an impact, and that the position that we take as a people, giving the highest value to women, will become widely known and supported across ... religious, cultural and national boundaries".   
Jan Paulsen, President of General Conference of SDA

Welcome to the website ItFace.me.  You have not come to this page by mistake or by chance. Abuse faces you :  you are in a destructive relationship, you are victim of domestic violence, or you recognize abuse in the life of someone you love, may be a member of your family, a member of your community, or may be your neighbour, at your workplace, or at home.
If you are being abused, you need help immediately. You have to put an end to the abusive relationship. You need to know that you do not deserve to be abused, but you have the right to live without fear, to be safe and to have a healthy relationship. You know also that sexual assault is an act of power of a criminal nature.
We want to tell you that you are not alone. It faces you and we are here to help you to find protection and healing.  If you are not ready today to make the choice of being helped, you may find information and resources in this website that may encourage you to be able to say “no more” to the abusive situation. We really are concerned about you, we want to treat you with love, respect and dignity, simply because this is God’ intent for you, who created you at His image, with the right to choose to be free from oppressors.
