COVID-19: MIFUMI MESSAGE ON VAW/C
MIFUMI joined the District task force in the fight against the Corona Virus known as COVID-19.
MIFUMI is relaying the Government of Uganda guidelines by encouraging people to stay at home, practice social distancing and wash hands frequently.
To this message MIFUMI is adding its voice as a caution to people not to resort to violence against women and children during the lock down. The stress brought about by the lock downs should not be used as an excuse for Domestic Violence
We are encouraging people not to exploit those less powerful than them especially women and children, and to desist from domestic violence.
MIFUMI is asking people to report any cases of violence and abuse immediately to the Police or local authorities or call the MIFUMI helpline on 0800 200 250
Let us not allow women and children to become the hidden and silent victims of the Corona Virus.
During this stressful time of a worldwide crisis,
let us live in peace in our homes and be pleasant to each other and to our neighbours.
