Development of Public Sensitization Awareness for GBV survivors and women at risk
Before the Beirut Port blast, women in Lebanon have been under a range of economic and social pressures due to the ongoing crises and facing multiple societal inequalities. The civil society has highlighted the lack of sufficient, safe spaces and resources and the dire need to scale up service provision of integrated Gender-Based Violence (GBV) and sexual and reproductive health services to reach the most vulnerable and marginalized in Beirut and the rest of Lebanon. In light of this situation, Red Oak launched, in partnership with IRC and with the support of the Lebanon Financing Facility (LFF), a project to develop Public Sensitization Awareness for Gender-Based Violence (GBV) survivors and women at risk. The project raises awareness and sheds light on the heightened risks of Gender Based Violence for women and girls in Beirut and Mount Lebanon. The enhanced support for survivors of GBV and support for mental health and Persons with Disabilities initiatives are open to all vulnerable women and girls and migrants, domestic workers, and refugees.
