A new immigrant (涵真) from the mainland China claimed that after moving to Taiwan, she experienced domestic abuse. Fortunately, with the help of social workers, she was able to flee the dangerous environment and started to acclimate to life once more. She wants to remind everyone that domestic abuse includes not only physical pain but also emotional trauma. She sincerely hopes that everyone can avoid and prevent it from happening.
