The YWCA of Palestine Launches "Child Custody is My Right" Campaign On the International Women's Day
The YWCA of Palestine in partnership with the Palestinian NGOs Forum to Combat Violence against Women launched the "Child Custody is My right" campaign on the International Women's Day through an activity implemented in a number of areas that are under threat of confiscation by the occupation. 50 women farmers, who continue to protect their lands and remain steadfast, were honored . The activity was carried out by a group of youth volunteers from our partner organization Al Awda Rehabilitation Center for Children and Youth in Tulkarm who introduced the farmers to the campaign. The campaign demands that the Palestinian government amends the section of the Personal Status Law related to custody to ensure that women and men have equal custody rights and that the child's best interest is taken into account.
