Community Fair on Albert Street Highlights 16 Days of Against Gender-Based Violence

The National Women’s department conducted a community fair on Albert Street today as part of the 16 days of activism program. The informative and fun exhibition was made possible through the contribution from human development, the Belize Police Domestic Violence Unit and health industries. Women’s Development Officer Kendra Hyde spoke about the event.

Participants were given an opportunity to test their glucose and blood levels, play games and ask questions. The booths were beautifully decorated with prizes and pamphlets. Outreach Case Officer for the National Drug Abuse Control Council Glenn Tillett Jr, spoke about substance abuse being a contributing factor for domestic violence.

The 16 days of activism activities continue in Belize City tomorrow with an open event at the Hattieville Community Library.
