As soon as you notice someone with a black dot on their palm, you should help them immediately. This black dot is not just a simple dot, but signifies person’s call for help. These dots are helpful in indicating their grave situation and that they are in great danger. A black dot on palm symbolizes that the person is a victim of physical abuse and molestation. They are in need of help and expecting you to rescue them.
It is a silent cry on the part of the victims but it does attract the attention of the viewer and in some cases, it might get you some help as well.
The ‘Black Dot Campaign’ is indeed a bold protest which began on Facebook, launched to recognize people who become victims of abuse in any way.
“The black dot on the hand lets professionals know you’re a really vulnerable domestic violence survivor, and that you need help but can’t ask because your abuser is watching your every move. In just 24 hours, the campaign has reached over 6,000 people worldwide, and has already helped 6 women. Please spread the campaign, and post a picture of your hand with the black dot, to show your support to all survivors of domestic violence,” said people who initiated the protest on the social media.

The campaign(of making black dot on palm) became a great success just in just a few days of its initiation.
One of the organizers of the campaign said,“I am heavily pregnant and the baby’s father is very abusive. With words, his hands. I’ve been petrified for so long and even more with the baby coming soon.
I was at the hospital yesterday, he was with me, he never leaves my side anymore. I had to have an examination so the consultant asked me to lie on the bed and drew the curtain.
I leant over and took the pen out of his pocket, pull his hand over to me and wrote HELP ME. I didn’t have to say a word. “This campaign gave me the strength and the idea how to ask for help. I am now safe somewhere else thanks to that consultant and the black dot campaign. Thank you, 1 week to go until my due date and I am finally safe.
