There are not many services for male victims in Canada. Those that do exist receive little attention from the government or media. One particular group is in need of funding
The The Canadian Maltese Charitable Service trust will be holding its second annual Domestic Violence symposium at Ryerson College in Toronto, Canada on June 5 & 6 from 9am to 6pm.
The event is needed to bridge a severe information gap. While hundreds of thousands of dollars are dedicated to promoting awareness of the plight and experiences of abused women and girls, little to nothing has been done to inform the public about abused men and boys.
According to the site, the event will cost $10,000 to cover the venue, equipment, promotional materials, and speakers’ expenses. Attila Vinczer, the Executive Secretary of the organization, paid for the previous year’s fees. This year he will need an additional $3,000 to cover the costs.
The group is asking for donations. If you can, please donate and help the organization in its effort to bring awareness to domestic violence against men.
