Harry Parham Breaks Silence on Nora Parham’s Abusive Relationship

Parham recalls seeing his mother being physically abused at the hands of the man she was accused of killing. He recounted occasions, as a seven-year-old, when he had to run from his home to a nearby police station to seek help for his mother. His family now recommends that more support be provided for domestic violence victims.

“When I was about seven years old, some nights I use to have to leave home and run to the police station to ask somebody there to come and take him out the house. What I asked the minister, I asked the minister and said, let this be something that will press the government to do something about this. I mentioned two basic things that could happen, is set up in each of the major towns in Belize a place where women or abused victims could go to and listen to, and not only listened to but actions could be done to help those people. Also, in each of these places let there be a house of refuge for people like them. I think we need that in all the major towns, and put people in there who are humans, who feel for these types of person, who could sympathize with these persons. It is only if they get a sympathetic ear that they could be helped.”
