Dawwi 3al ghalat

Date: Tuesday, September 4, 2018

 

Beirut, Lebanon – September 2018: himaya is a local NGO founded in 2008 with the mission of promoting an environment suitable for the development of children and ensuring their global
protection via fighting and preventing abuse on Lebanese ground. himaya NGO launched its awareness campaign “Dawwe 3al Ghalat” in a press conference, under the patronage of His
Excellency Mr. Saad Hariri, on the 27 th of September, at the Grand Serail, in the presence of Lebanese officials, celebrities, media representatives, and prominent Lebanese social figures.

 

Because child abuse happens every day behind closed doors, the campaign aims to bring light into the darkness, by triggering people to report cases of child abuse.

“Dawwi 3al Ghalat” also focuses on the importance of having all actors reporting and not hiding abuse when it happens: when abuse occurs within a family, school or any organization, we can
only judge them for the way they respond to abuse and not hold them responsible for it occurring within their premises. The proper way would be of course to protect the victim and sanction the
abuser. No more fear to “dawwi 3al ghalat”. Glow-in-the-dark tattoos with the campaign’s logo “Dawwi 3al Ghalat” were distributed to all press conference’s attendees to put as a symbol of support, in addition to spreading the word by sharing on social media, the video produced by himaya following a cinema stunt, executed at a
special fundraising screening of Capharnaüm movie, by renowned Lebanese director Nadine Labaki.

 

The stunt features 10 kids of different ages and genders, representing any child who might be suffering of abuse. Moreover, an emotional call for action TVC is launched on all Lebanese televisions, in line with the campaign’s objective.
himaya NGO is dedicated to making child protection a right across Lebanon, aiming to break the silence by offering children the life skills they need to defend themselves. himaya also supports
survivors of abuse and gives them the psychosocial support they need to overcome their experiences. In order to be as effective as possible, the NGO works with children, their families, and surroundings as a whole. It strives to make a change on a national level with the help of its two main programs: the prevention and resilience programs. It covers the entire Lebanese territory with offices in Zahle, Mount Lebanon, North Bekaa, Sidon and Tripoli.
