Dollo Ado Refugee Camps Say No to Gender Violence
UNHCR, 26 Nov 2011
Sixteen Days of Activism against Gender Violence kicked off in all Dollo Ado camps today, with celebrations, drama, theatre, dance, sport and public announcements. November 26th is International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and refugees turned out in force to attend the various events planned in the different camps and the Transit Centre to mark the day. Refugee outreach workers joined the staff of humanitarian agencies to spread the word about key issues such as the exposure of girls and women to attack while out of the camps collecting firewood. The campaign runs until Dec 10th, which is International Human Rights Day, and also includes World AIDS day on Dec 1st.
