    Prevention is important in Mercy’s story to prevent intergenerational cycle of violence from one family to another. This is seen through Mercy herself who witnessed violence while she was young. Her aunt even tells her beating is a sign of love! Prevention is also key to transform social and gender norms that contribute to violence in the family.
