MoU between MoSA and UNICEF to protect vulnerable women and children


The Minister of Social Affair, Rashid Derbas, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the UNICEF representative, Anna Maria Laurini, aiming at implementing MoSA national plan to protect women and children in Lebanon.  The signing took place during an official ceremony held the day before yesterday at the Serail with the participation of EU Ambassador, Angelina Eichhorst.
The plan will be implemented during an 18 month period with funding support from the European Union and will include the provision of quality services for women and children at risk especially from gender based violence. The programme will also provide psycho-social support and basic health care to some 198,000 children and youth.  It will also offer awareness and information on existing services to some 410,000 individuals of various age groups and from different communities.  The plan is also expected to target service providers and therefore will seek to building the capacities of MoSA staff both centrally and locally, thus covering some 57 MoSA centers, in addition to those of partner CSOs and local community structures.
