27-11-2013

The Internal Security Forces organised the day before yesterday, and on the occasion of International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women an event entitled "the role of internal security in addressing domestic violence", which was held at the ISF HQ in Ashrafyeh, and included the launch of the 16 days campaign to combat violence against women, organised by ISF in collaboration with Kafa.
The event is part of a campaign, running under the slogan "we have a mission" and calling on women to use their 112 hotline to seek help if they are subjected to violence.  This campaign was launched the day before yesterday, on the occasion of the International Human Rights Day, and will continue until December 10th.  The campaign is part of a wider program entitled "strengthening the role of the ISF in combating violence against women" being implemented by Kafa with funding from UNFPA and the Italian Government and seeking to mainstream protection from gender based violence within the national plan of the ISF.
On a related vein, the United Nation media centre organised along with “Say No to Violence” association a number of activities in the village of Sfarayh in South Lebanon targeting 59 children and 20 educators from SOS Children Village. The activities aimed at raising children's awareness on combating violence against women, and are parts of the UN's concern in protecting children from violence and exploitation and raising awareness on violence at a young age.
