NO MÁS: Victims of Domestic Violence

NO MÁS: Victims of Domestic Violence is a project to provide appliances (refrigerators and stoves) to victims of domestic violence of Puerto Rico to support them in their steps to overcome and reconcile a community free from violence. A tragic reality is that most of the victims of domestic violence are left homeless with their children. Through our project we donate the stove and refrigerator to qualify for the housing program by the Department of the Family of Puerto Rico.

Every minute, on average, 24 women are victims of some type of domestic violence in the United States, of which more than 19% have been raped and 31.5% have been victims of beatings by their partners, according to data from the CDC ( Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). One in four women experience domestic abuse at some time in their life, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV). According to UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund), there is a common link between domestic violence and child abuse. Of the children who are victims of child abuse, 40% also report that they come from households with episodes of domestic violence. An average of 3 to 10 million children and adolescents have witnessed violence in their homes and many of them have also been abused. Domestic violence does not discriminate and can occur in any type of home regardless of social class, religion, or level of education.

“Gender violence is the violence that someone exerts on a person just because of their gender. The actions we consider violent are all those that negatively affect the identity, sexuality and reproductive freedom, physical and mental health and social welfare of a person.”


“In most of the legislation the concept of gender violence is reduced to violence against women, but it is more complex than that. This type of violence includes dynamics of domination, including threats and arbitrary deprivation of political and civil liberties, regardless of the area in which they occur. ” (

Domestic violence, also called domestic abuse, is the exercise of violence within a family. That is, the action or omission that the member of a family exerts against another member and causes them physical or psychological harm.

Domestic violence, can include different forms of abuse, from intimidation to beatings through harassment or insults. The one committing violence can act against a single family member (such as their partner or their child) or behave violently against everyone in the family. (
