Vice Governor Cris Garcia spearheaded the ceremonial program in the Province in support of this year’s observance of 𝟏𝟖-𝐃𝐚𝐲 𝐂𝐚𝐦𝐩𝐚𝐢𝐠𝐧 𝐭𝐨 𝐄𝐧𝐝 𝐕𝐢𝐨𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐀𝐠𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐬𝐭 𝐖𝐨𝐦𝐞𝐧 (𝐕𝐀𝐖).

Bataan’s Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office (PSWDO) organized the program in Balanga City a week ago. Activities included open forum and discussion of laws on women’s rights, presentation of statistical data on VAW, and preventive tips against abuse, rape, trafficking, and other gender-based violence.

The campaign theme, “UNITED for a VAW-free Philippines” aims to highlight the powerful impact of combining individual efforts towards a collaborative and united thrust towards VAW-free Philippines.

Aside from Vice Gov. Garcia, the event was also attended by Board Member Iya Roque, Atty. Nadine Guzman, Police Captain Cynthia Banez, and PSWDO Head Maria Cristina Lopez.
