The Community Center for IDPs celebrates International Women's Day
The Community Center for Displaced Persons of HUMAN ACCESS in Marib Governorate celebrated International Women's Day as part of the protection project funded by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). The purpose of International Women's Day, which is observed on March 8th each year, is to recognize and respect women's roles in society and to emphasize the importance of protecting and appreciating their rights.
During the celebration event, which featured many sections and an evaluation of the success stories of women who overcame difficult realities, 10 successful women were honored with the participation of a delegation from the UNHCR office in Marib, led by Dr. Lowand Talal, a protection officer, Taher Mohammed, the senior protection assistant in the office, and Ali Salem, the protection assistant in the office, and others.
A speech delivered by Dr. Lowand on behalf of the UNHCR office focused on UNHCR's commitment and its partner, HUMAN ACCESS, to supporting and protecting the rights of women and girls, and on investing in the talents and energy of women to serve communities, especially those displaced by conflict.
Those women pay a heavy price for the ongoing conflict in Yemen and that it is important to give priority to their rights and needs.
