‘’Families2gether’’

SUSAN PERKINS
Posted January 25, 2018 from Nigeria

We run a monthly support group meeting and intervention for couples seeking to enhance the quality of their relationship, communication, and shared commitment to safer behaviours. The monthly support group is held once a month where men and women can meet and share their experiences with others who have gone through similar experiences to encourage each other. We also provide advice, information and support to parents who fear their child may be at risk of abduction, assist and advice in international contact issues and cases of 'permission to remove'.

Hi Susan. Thanks for sharing your post about having monthly support group meetings. Can you tell us where and when they are or supply a link to more information, so that people have it?

Hello, Susan. Strong families are results of strong marriages. I applaud you for being part of this initiative. I advocate meaningful relationships for couples, too. So happy to know about this. Keep it up!
