MAFAR PUSHES FOR VAW-FREE COMMUNITIES
The Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Agrarian Reform (MAFAR) of the BARMM supports the 18-Day Campaign to End Violence Against Women (VAW) from November 25 to December 12, 2020.
We encourage everyone to understand and always bear in mind the essence of VAW that is…
“any act of gender-based violence that results or is likely to result in physical, sexual or psychological harm or suffering to women including threats or such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty whether occurring in public or private life. Gender-based violence is any violence inflicted on women because of their sex”.
