Understand the complexity of abuse and realize that help and healing is a long journey. You cannot "rescue" her. She has to want to get help.
Help her develop a safety plan.
Find a local support group (Christian, if possible); offer to accompany her.
Locate a safe place for her and her family if she's in a dire situation (when she separates, she's most vulnerable to violence).

is a public health problem that affects more than one third of all
women globally.” (World Health Organization, Geneva. 2013)
In 2014, analysis of data from more than 80 countries found that 35%
of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual

studies also reveal that approximately 20% of women and 5 to 10% of
men report being victims of sexual violence as children. (World Health
