Based Violence during the Covid-19 pandemic. We need to #ActAgainstGBV https://t.co/yFfUzoXpyz

The Covid-19 lockdowns and curfews have exposed young girls to
their aggressors, resulting in high rape numbers, pregnancies and cases of
aggravated assault. #ACTagainstGBV https://t.co/LS4AryQUjx

According to Ugandan Law, a person in a domestic relationship who engages in #domesticviolence commits an offence and is liable to a fine or imprisonment not exceeding 2 years. #ACTagainstGBV https://t.co/rz99JYH9lC MFAUganda photo

The Covid-19 inspired lockdowns and curfews have led to an increase in cases of Gender Based Violence and teenage pregnancies. We believe things can change for the better if we all #ACTagainstGBV. Let’s Abide by the law, Call for help and Talk about it within our communities. https://t.co/vHFfo6YGYP MFAUganda photo

Media practitioners in Uganda operate
