Here’s Why You Need to Know About Dubai Foundation for Women and Children!
The Dubai Foundation for Women and Children (DFWAC) was established in 2007 to offer immediate protection and support services for women and children in the UAE against domestic violence, child abuse, and human trafficking. It is the first licensed non-profit shelter in the UAE that runs specifically for the care of women and children. The services DFWAC offers are in complete accordance with international human rights obligations.
The Dubai Foundation for Women and Children recently released its annual report, and there were 1,027 cases in 2018, involving victims of domestic violence, child abuse, violence against women and human trafficking. This is a prominent decrease from 2017 when the organization reported 1,433 cases.
“I would urge people to pick up the phone and call us as abuse is not justifiable under any circumstance. I would urge people to take advice from a professional. Don’t take advice from family or friends as you don’t know their background and everyone will bring their own personal perspective and this can cause damage,” said Ghanima Al-Bahri, Care and Rehabilitation Director at DFWAC.
