Domestic Violence and Bride Price in the News

MIFUMI has often been mentioned in the news for Domestic Violence and Bride Price.  Some of the issues raised include Bride Price and Polygamy.  Other times it is because we are known for our services on Violence Against Women.  These include the National Domestic Violence Helpline (0800 200 250) and direct services in Tororo, Bukedea, Kampala, Moroto, Mbarara, Mbale, Kirewa and Budaka.
