FIFA JOINS WHO, CAF FIGHT AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

 World football governing body FIFA says it will join the African Union, the World Health Organisation and the Confederation of African Football to jointly address the issue of domestic violence across the African continent.

According to FIFA, one of the proposed ways to fight this violence is the initiation of a campaign tagged #SafeHome, which has been supported by a number of African football stars via video awareness messages distributed on social and traditional media.

The initiative is designed to support women and children who are victims of domestic violence, particularly as stay-at-home measures in response to COVID-19 have put them at greater risk.

President Gianni Infantino was quoted on FIFA website saying, “I am glad that today we can launch this campaign on the important topic of domestic violence, which is significantly exacerbated by COVID-19 lockdown conditions and movement restrictions, together with our partners, the African Union, WHO and CAF.
