International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women

Tomorrow, November 25th, marks the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

It is paramount that we, on a global level, seek to prevent and end violence against girls and women.

CHW, together with World WIZO, has been a dedicated advocate to combat violence against women and promote women’s rights. CHW provides opportunities to women and children to have a way out of the cycle of violence. Through CHW supported shelters and helplines, women and children have a safe place to turn when in need; giving them a second chance at life.

This year, WIZO has embarked on a campaign in light of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and created a powerful video that critically illustrates the steps takes following an act of domestic violence.

Make this year be the year that we bring about real change.
