Why Domestic Violence Awareness?

Domestic violence in Hong Kong remains one of its most neglected problems and unfortunately, also its most hidden. Over the past five years, domestic violence in the city has increased, with as many as 98% of domestic abuse cases going unreported.

While domestic abuse happens to both men and women, research shows that women are at a heightened risk of becoming victims of violence during periods of conflict, particularly when they try to end their relationship. Domestic murder-suicides feature prominently among homicides in Hong Kong. These incidents are often the breaking point in a relationship likely to have been peppered by escalating violence earlier on.

Hong Kong — along with Japan — has the highest rate of female homicide victims in the world: women comprise 52.9 per cent of the total homicide victims in these two jurisdictions.

On a personal note, we at The 5th C feel very strongly about such an important cause as we have seen the physical and emotional toll domestic violence has taken on friends and family who have experienced it, and we would like to do our part to ensure support organisations such as Harmony House are able to continue the incredible work that they do for victims.

Who Are Harmony House?

Harmony House was established in 1985 as a non-profit organization in Hong Kong that specialises in handling domestic violence cases. They are dedicated to providing services for individuals/families who have been affected by domestic violence, and are advocates of harmonious family relationships.

Along with helpful hotlines, counseling services and a shelter for women and children, Harmony House also conducts community education programmes including school-based services, and professional training for law enforcement and religious centres.

Every woman Is A Gem

We thank you for your support & hope to see you there!
