REMEMBER!

Sexual and gender-based violence is NEVER your fault. 

NO ONE has the right to hurt you.

You can ALWAYS ask for help. 

 
 

 

The video and the leaflets have been developed in the framework of the regional project PROTECT - Preventing sexual and gender-based violence against migrants and strengthening support to victims, funded by the European Union's Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme (2014-2020).
