Because of this, sexual intimidation, human trafficking, forced marriages, and other forms of sexual exploitation and violence roam freely during this pandemic, which puts women and children in the domestic environment in danger. This happens in a country where violence against women is a nationwide, cultural issue. Many cases of domestic violence and murder are never prosecuted or even reported.
The Awakening is launching a special campaign aimed at domestic violence during the pandemic. Het Actiefonds supports The Awakening with the launch of this campaign. Through flyers, radio commercials, podcasts, and social media they want to inform and raise awareness within local communities by communicating true stories and scientific information.
