Makhzoumi Foundation’s Psycho Social Support team conducted an awareness session using Zoom Application, in collaboration with AL SAMA Project, to discuss the difference between “Domestic Violence” and “Gender Based Violence”.
The awareness session tackled the types and forms of gender based violence such as: sexual, physical, emotional, financial and resource deprivation. In addition, the Psycho Social Support team identified the psychological harm resulted from the abuse.
Moreover, the Psycho Social Support team shared ABAAD and KAFA’S hotline in case of any abuse incidents or any red flags presented.
The session was informative and the interactive, where many 12 & 15 years old ladies were sharing incidents that happened within their communities. They were fully aware of the responsibility held by each and every one of them to STOP abuse.
Furthermore, the young ladies were encouraged to spread awareness on the subject with their peers.
