The stakeholder who were present together with empowerment circle leaders from different districts and wards took turns to give solidarity messages on what 16 days of activism against GBV were about and they also explained their roles in the communities on issues of Gender Based Violence. The VFU gave their message on Gender based violence and the law. They gave emphasis on the referral pathways where they encouraged the community that in the event that any type of gender based violence is occurring or occurs to them or their neighbors they can visit the nearest ZRP Victim Friendly Unit (VFU) department. Participants were encouraged to report cases of domestic violence as quickly as possible so that victims receive medical treatment before contracting unwanted pregnancies, HIV in cases of rape or death and internal injury.Read more: ANTI GENDER BASED VIOLENCE FAIR
