Akkar Network for Development (AND) organized yesterday in Chekka the closing ceremony for its ‘Justice for Akkar’ project, in the presence of experts and representatives of civil society organization operating in the region. Funded by the US Embassy Small Grants Program, the project is aimed at promoting awareness on the Law for the Protection of Women and their Family Members from Domestic Violence which was passed in April 2014.
