The Help Center for victims of physical and sexual violence at Women against Violence is launching its campaign through social media to raise awareness regarding the services provided by the center. As we believe that a life of dignity, safety and justice is a basic right, and that each woman and girl is entitled to care and support in order to break the circle of violence, we are launching the "6566813-04" campaign to introduce the services provided by the Help Center for victims of physical and sexual violence.
