Community Wedding - Requests Financial Support

Dear Brother/Sisters,

Greeting from our Central Council in the name of Blessed Frederic Ozanam

The practice of dowry abuse is rising in India . The most severe in “bride burning”, the burning of women whose dowries were not considered sufficient by their husband or in-laws. Most of these incidents are reported as accidental burns in the kitchen or are disguised as suicide. It is evident that there exist deep rooted prejudices against women in India. Cultural practices such as the payment of dowry tend to subordinate women in Indian society.
