White Ribbon Campaign To Launch On St Helena

To recognise White Ribbon Day 2019, the UN Development Programme Safe Haven Project and the Children & Adults Social Care Directorate will be running an awareness raising campaign, starting on Monday, 18 November, and ending with a final event on Monday, 25 November 2019. The theme for this Campaign isSOSU’ for Domestic Abuse– Speak out, Stand up for Domestic Abuse’.

Around the world, White Ribbon awareness focusses on men taking a stand against domestic violence. The White Ribbon Day Committee has chosen to change the focus from targeting males and decided that the aim and vision would be to use the voices of the male and female population of St Helena to encourage all on the Island to ‘Speak Out and Stand Up’ against  all kinds of abuse, irrespective of gender and age.

Campaign activities can be found here.
