More than 4,000 people, 94.5% of them women, have benefited from a humanitarian aid project to improve the protection of the most vulnerable women in Area C in the West Bank (Occupied Palestinian Territory)

The project, funded by the Extreme Cooperation Agency (AEXCID), has promoted the creation of mobile brigades to provide sexual and reproductive health services and gender-based violence care in locations with access difficulties.

This project, of which they are partners Women's Affairs Technical Committees, ha beneficiado a 4.191 personas en Cisjordania, especialmente en el Área C (bajo control israelí) que sufre constantes restricciones de movimientos personales, demoliciones de sus hogares y desplazamientos forzosos. Gracias a esta intervención, un equipo multidisciplinar de profesionales ha podido llegar a cubrir zonas aisladas de Tulkarem y Jenin, que no tenían acceso a servicios especializados de violencia de género.

In Palestine, most cases of gender-based violence remain unrecorded, as a result of the isolation of some of the communities based in Area C and their difficulties in accessing specialized health and legal services. For this reason, the project has helped to strengthen the protection of the most vulnerable women of Tulkaren and Jenin, through the provision of multisectoral services (health, psychological care and legal care) and awareness raising through Grassroots Community Organizations (CBOs) against gender-based and women's rights.

In addition, we have complemented these services with awareness campaigns and activities such as drawing murals on the walls of refugee camps in Jenin and Tulkarem or holding popular careers for women and girls, especially in the most conservative towns. These careers have not only raised awareness among the population about gender-based violence, but it has been for them "a very enriching experience in being able to run through the streets freely, and raise their voices without fear against violence against women," said our partner Paula Herranz, Alliance for Solidarity in Palestine worker and gender expert, "This is a strategy to work the body as a space for peace, and to express emotions of freedom, acceptance of their bodies and sorority," Herranz stressed.
