Today marks the beginning of 16 days of activism against gender-based violence (25th Nov – 10th Dec).
The 2020 theme of “Orange the World: Fund, Respond, Prevent, Collect!” references orange being a bright and optimistic colour, representing a future free from violence against women and girls.
BHFNC supports this initiative and its goal to eliminate violence whenever and wherever it occurs.
