GBF is launching a new feature in which we take a closer look at one of our programs in each newsletter.

There has been an alarming increase in domestic violence burn injury over the past decade. Incidents of domestic violence burn injury increase during the winter, which is highly evidenced in some middle eastern regions where inter-partner injury is inflicted due to perceived dishonor brought upon a woman's husband or family by her "behavior".

Burn survivors face a lifetime of extensive recovery in order to live their lives to the fullest extent possible.
