NGO Celebrates Founder At 50, Unveils Domestic Violence Clinic

June 10, (THEWILL)- A Non-Governmental organisation, Do Foundation, celebrated its founder, Dr Dise Ogbise Goody Harry, on her 50th birthday anniversary with the unveiling of an online Domestic Violence Clinic in Bayelsa State.

The Online Domestic Violence Clinic, according to the Do Foundation, is expected to cater to victims of domestic violence to call in and seek assistance in tackling issues of abuse and receive immediate assistance in the areas of guidance and counseling, prosecution and treatment.

The founder of the Do Foundation, Dr Dise Ogbise Goody Harry, while speaking at the 50th Birthday celebration and unveiling of the Online Domestic Violence Clinic, held at the Secretariat of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ), said the clinic was unveiled in partnership with Mrs Mary Accrah Bekeowei, Nurse Elly Goody, Dr NUVIE Opeyemi and CPS Grace to embrace internationally recognised best practices in curbing cases of domestic violence.

Dr Dise pointed out that the unveiling of the online domestic violence clinic will enable Bayelsans to call in and report all cases of domestic violence for swift action to be taken within the ambit of the law.

The founder, who is also a Legal practitioner and Gender advocate, noted that the unveiling of the online clinic is a significant milestone of her 50th Birthday celebration, insisting that it is time for her to take service to humanity to another level.

“The online clinic is power-packed, in collaboration with her intervention partners, and will be result-oriented as the partners here will respond faster to cases of domestic violence due to their track records in intervention on domestic violence cases over time and expertise in dealing with issues.”

“Also, all complaints will be taken online, and physical interventions will be done in hospitals provided by our partners.”

She also announced the launching of an online weekly talk show where they will be live every Tuesday at 6 pm on the YouTube channel, X (formerly Twitter) and other social media platforms, to highlight educative stories that will be shared and positive lessons learned to reduce cases of domestic violence globally.

“The online domestic violence clinic is to deepen the fight to combat domestic violence in Nigeria, beginning with Bayelsa State. In recognition of the efforts of the prosperity administration in the last years, as a group, we are open for a robust partnership from individuals, groups, and international organisations. It is our desire that domestic violence, especially gender-based, is swept back into the ocean of history in the lowest ebb in no time.”
