My friend was experiencing sexual abuse at her home. What should I do to help her specially during this lockdown?

Question :  My friend is staying in a joint family. She was sexually abused by his uncle and she just told me about this. Now after she warned her uncle that she will tell her parents about this, he stopped doing things. But still, she is always scared. Earlier she used to come to my place but now due to the lockdown she even can’t do that. How should I support her? Teentalker
