Banding Together Against Violence!


The 5th annual Rakhi Project launched at the Vancity Credit Union in Newton this week where communities came together to speak out against domestic abuse. The 2015 Rakhi Project, running from July 15-August 29, is designed to raise awareness about domestic abuse. The Surrey RCMP is a proud partner of this City of Surrey initiative. “Domestic abuse spans across all cultures, and this initiative is part of a multi-faceted approach the City of Surrey has undertaken to foster an ongoing dialogue around the issue of domestic violence in our community,” said Mayor Linda Hepner. This year’s campaign focuses on the significant role that first responders play when answering domestic abuse incidents; often providing time-sensitive, critical, on-scene support for both victims and their children.
